Oxlade-Chamberlain happy to contribute to Liverpool again

The Reds saw midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain return to action on Saturday afternoon, with his first league start since April 2018.


The 26 year old has missed the best part of 12 months of action since his injury and has had bits and pieces of matches since the back end of last season.


But after a full pre-season under his belt and a couple of starts this season, it looks as if the former Arsenal star's injury woes may be behind him. For the time being.


Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com following the game, Oxlade-Chamberlain: "It was nice to be back out there. In a winning performance is always nice as well.


"In the first half I felt my way into it a bit and got to grips with what’s what. You have to play off triggers; so when Trent [Alexander-Arnold] gets the ball, it’s about getting back into rhythm with my movements off him and Mo [Salah] and the rest of the team. I think in the second half I settled into a bit better.


"I had an alright game, a decent game but the main thing was I wanted to make sure I focused on the defensive duties and making sure I was putting in the work and had the legs to help the boys. I’m glad we did that as a team.


"On a personal level, it’s nice for me, it has been a while since I started but I’m delighted that I could help contribute to the team because that’s what I’ve missed so much, being able to contribute and help this set of players to achieve things. It was really nice to be back out there."
