Liverpool: Fans want to see more of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will continue to improve following his performance against Newcastle on Saturday.

Speaking to the club’s official website liverpoolfc.com, Klopp praised the recent displays of the 26-year-old, who has started three matches so far this season, and Liverpool’s official Twitter channel @LFC shared some of the manager’s comments.

Oxlade-Chamberlain played just 19 minutes of first team football last season after coming back in April from a serious knee injury which kept him out of action for a year, as noted by Goal.com.

He has already has 252 minutes of game time this season and featured in all but one of Liverpool’s matches in 2019/20, getting a further 75 minutes under his belt against Newcastle at the weekend. [via TransferMarkt.co.uk]

Some observers felt that his performance in that game was less than convincing, with Ian Doyle of the Liverpool Echo saying that he had a “mixed bag first half” against the Magpies.

If the England midfielder plays against Napoli tonight, it will be his first Champions League appearance since the semi-final first leg against Roma in April 2018 in which he picked up that year-long knee injury.

These Liverpool fans on Twitter called for Oxlade-Chamberlain to continue featuring regularly for the Reds:
