Some Liverpool fans want Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to be handed a place in the starting 11 for their fixture against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Will Liverpool win the Premier League title this season?
The 26-year-old has made just two starts in the Premier League so far this season, as well as making three appearances from the bench (via Transfermarkt).
Oxlade-Chamberlain endured a torrid 2018/19 campaign in which he managed to play just 19 minutes in total due to injuries (via Transfermarkt).
Prior to that he had been a regular for Jurgen Klopp, featuring in 42 matches in the 2017/18 season before sustaining cruciate ligament damage (via Transfermarkt).
He has struggled to force his way into the Reds line-up since returning from injury, with Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho more often than not the starting trio in midfield (via Transfermarkt).
All three of those have done well, but one criticism often thrown at them is their lack of goals and creativity. Indeed, between them in the 18/19 season they managed to score just six goals (via Transfermarkt).
It is perhaps because of this that several Liverpool supporters want Oxlade-Chamberlain to play from the start at Old Trafford. After all, he did claim eight assists and five goals in the 17/18 campaign (via Transfermarkt).
Here is what some Reds fans have been saying…
Start him on Sunday.

Can he start the Sunday game please, he relieves so much pressure from the front three by being a goal threat too coming from the middle.
