Liverpool have had a lot of bad luck this season as they have had several key players ruled out due to injury. However, many fans are rejoicing due to the fact that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looks to be close to returning to match fitness.
The Englishman posted an image on Instagram of himself with a ball at his feet, a picture which was subsequently posted on Twitter by @AnfieldWatch. The 27-year-old suffered an injury in August and has been out since but he looks like he’s closing in on what will be a much-welcomed return.
This is not the only good news that Liverpool have had on the injury front this week as it has been recently reported that both Thiago and Fabinho are close to returning too, so Klopp is close to having a strong selction of midfield options to choose from once again, although Fabinho could be asked to play in defence again due to the long-term injuries to Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk.
Speaking in the past about Oxlade-Chamberlain, Klopp said: ‘He had a lot of moments where he was really outstanding.’ Someone rated so highly by the manager will be a huge lift when returning to the squad, especially with the injury crisis at the club currently.
Hopefully, Oxlade-Chamberlain will be fully fit as soon as possible so that Klopp can add some much-needed quality and depth to his depleted squad.
Here is how Liverpool fans reacted to the news
