Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Returns to the Pitch After Eight Moths

He’s been injured for eight months Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered the ultimate injury heartbreak back in April, as he tore knee ligaments that would rule him out of both the Champions League final and the World Cup – both of which he was nailed on to feature in. It was the latest of many injuries that have stunted the midfielder’s development, which came at the worst possible time, after he had claimed his place on the right of Liverpool’s midfield. After a long and difficult rehabilitation period, Oxlade-Chamberlain has returned to…
