It’s easy to forget Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s impact during his debut season at Liverpool.

The midfielder may have made a slow start to life at Anfield following his £35 million move from Arsenal but he soon showed everyone why Jurgen Klopp spent a sizeable fee on him.

He soon became one of Liverpool’s most important players in their run to the Champions League final and helped them finish fourth in the Premier League.

Who can forget Oxlade-Chamberlain’s pair of screamers in the 4-3 win over Manchester City in the league and the 3-0 victory in the Champions League quarter-final?

But during Liverpool’s incredible 5-2 win over Roma in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final, he ruptured ligaments and required surgery.

Early reports suggested that the midfielder could miss the entire 2018/19 season.

However, Oxlade-Chamberlain has worked extremely hard to get himself back fit and was seen back training with the ball in Dubai earlier this week.

And now, the Liverpool Echo have provided a big update on his rehabilitation.

The report states that: “The Reds won't take any risks with Oxlade-Chamberlain but it's realistic that he will be available for selection in March.”

“He could even be an option for the second leg of the Champions League last 16 second leg away to Bayern Munich on March 13.”

Blimey.

LIVERPOOL FANS ARE A BIT EXCITED

After hearing that exciting news, Liverpool fans could hardly contain their excitement. Check out the reaction on Twitter:

At that stage, Liverpool would still have eight matches to play in the Premier League title run-in and Oxlade-Chamberlain could provide a timely boost.

Just last week, Klopp admitted that the player looked “promising” and believed he would make his return before the end of the campaign.

“He’s on a very good way but it will still take time,” Klopp said.

“When I see him running or on the ball, it looks good, promising, close to a return but he had so long out. I think we will see him this season.”
