Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has told the club’s official website that he is like a new option to his manager Jurgen Klopp.

The former Arsenal star missed the majority of the 2018-19 campaign with a knee injury, but the England international is now fully fit and available.

According to WhoScored, the 26-year-old has made two starts and three substitute appearances in the Premier League for the Reds so far this season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has said that he will be like a new signing for the Reds despite having joined Liverpool from Arsenal in the summer of 2017 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £35 million.

 

Oxlade-Chamberlain told Liverpool’s official website: “I guess I feel like a new option to him compared to last season because he didn’t have me at his disposal, to be able to use me.

“In that sense I guess I am like a new person in the group he can use and I think I can definitely bring my qualities and provide something different to the other boys in my position.

“We all have our own qualities, we all bring different things, so my job is to do the things I was doing before I was injured. I’m another weapon in his armoury again now, although I’m not that new here!”

Important player for Liverpool

Oxlade-Chamberlain is a very good and dynamic midfielder who will enhance the quality of the current Liverpool team.

Having been on the sidelines for so long, the Englishman will be determined to make up for lost time and establish himself as an important player for the Merseyside outfit this season.
