REVEALED: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain comeback game is close

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oixlade-Chamberlain is very close to make his return from injury. He was ruled out for 11 months since rupturing knee ligaments in their Champions League semi-final defeat to Roma in April. But according to the Liverpool Echo, a late decision is expected to be made on Oxlade-Chamberlain ahead of the game and he will most likely play against Derby County on Friday. The 25-year-old has made impressive progress in his recovery after initial fears he would miss the entire 2018/19 season. Speaking about Oxlade-Chamberlain's fitness earlier this week, Klopp said: “Ox is doing 70% of team training. “He trains fully but not as much as the others. Then he leaves a bit early to do something else and the things he needs. “Everyone is always looking for a reaction but nothing has happened yet. We have to prepare him for his entire career, not just one particular game. When he's in training it looks very nice.”
