Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has struggled a lot to play regular games for Liverpool during the 21/22 campaign.

Former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson has described his lack of game time at Liverpool as “criminal”.

Chamberlain started the Reds’ season opener against Norwich City yet he has only played 8 minutes in the EPL, as many of Jurgen Klopp’s midfield options have regained their full fitness.

“He’s too good not to be playing. It’s criminal,” the ex-Spurs goalkeeper said


“I cannot see Liverpool letting him go in January though. Salah and Mane are off to the African Cup of Nations and he is one of the players who can play in those wide positions.


“He gives them an option across the midfield and the front line. A player like that is going to be hard to replace. He is the ideal player,” he told Football Insider 

Robinson admitted, the 28-year-old ‘is too good to be on the bench’.

“But, from the player’s point of view, he is too good to be sitting on the bench every week. He is not getting enough game time.


“The only situation I can see him leaving in January is if Liverpool signed a replacement first.”


Oxlade-Chamberlain has made more than 100 appearances for the Reds since arriving from Arsenal in 2017.
