A number of Liverpool supporters are delighted after Jurgen Klopp said Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be fit to face Crystal Palace this weekend.
The Reds made it into the Carabao Cup final on Thursday night, coasting to an impressive 2-0 victory away to Arsenal.
Diogo Jota was Liverpool’s hero at the Emirates, scoring both of his side’s goals as he stepped up in the absence of key duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
Someone who was unavailable for the game was Oxlade-Chamberlain, however, who missed out on taking on his former club because of an injury sustained against Brentford last weekend.
Speaking in his pre-Crystal Palace press conference on Friday [via journalist James Pearce on Twitter], Klopp said the midfielder was back in training, meaning he could be available for the weekend trip to Selhurst Park.

These Reds fans took to Twitter to reveal their happiness at the news, no doubt relieved after the Englishman found form with a goal against the Bees.
” Oh wow“
“Great news for Liverpool to have another midfield option back. But I would start with Fabinho, Henderson and Jones again. They were all pretty good against Arsenal last night. Having a consistent midfield line-up may help the team too.“
“Great news but Jones deserves the nod after his performance last night“
“Phew, will be needed over the next couple of weeks“
