With each passing week, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is getting closer and closer to making his return for Liverpool.
The midfielder has been on the sidelines since suffering a severe knee injury during Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Roma last April.
The injury cost Oxlade-Chamberlain the chance to play in the Champions League final, in addition to the 2018 World Cup with England.
The former Southampton youngster has stepped up his recovery in recent weeks, though, returning to the training field alongside his teammates.
It is currently unclear when the 25-year-old will be available to play some minutes, but that time is certainly getting closer.
And it would be fair to say that the Liverpool fans cannot wait for the 5ft 7in midfielder’s return.
Indeed, many of the club’s supporters took to social media in response to words from Jordan Henderson to reveal their thoughts on Oxlade-Chamberlain’s impending return.
