Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s energy and talent have made him a fan favourite since he joined Liverpool from Arsenal on the final day of the 2017 summer transfer window.

After an initial settling-in period at Anfield, the midfielder added to the attacking dimension of Jürgen Klopp’s side with his powerful physical attributes and intelligence on the ball.

Memorable goals in front of the Kop against Manchester City, both in the Premier League and Champions League, soon followed.

But the England international's hugely-encouraging first season on Merseyside was cruelly cut short due to a knee ligament injury sustained against AS Roma in the Champions League semi-final first leg at Anfield back in April 2018.

Liverpool believed it was likely Oxlade-Chamberlain would miss the whole 2018-19 season as a result, although the true extent of the injury was only publicly disclosed in the off-season, with the player not wanting the news to distract his teammates from the ongoing European run.

However, one year and two days on from suffering the injury in a tackle, Oxlade-Chamberlain made a return to first-team action with a cameo from the bench against Huddersfield Town at Anfield on April 26, 2019.

He was a substitute as the Reds won the 2019 Champions League final in Madrid by beating Tottenham Hotspur.

At the start of the historic 2019-20 campaign, Oxlade-Chamberlain took command of the No.15 squad number following Daniel Sturridge's departure and later signed a new long-term contract with the club.

He would collect the Standard Chartered Player of the Month award for October and make 43 appearances, which included eight goals, in the season to help the Reds lift the Premier League and FIFA Club World Cup for the first time.
