Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Liverpool
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has hinted at facing Liverpool again at some point, but says he would never celebrate against them if he were to score.
  • Joined the Reds in 2017
  • Won several major honours
  • Preparing for a new challenge

WHAT HAPPENED? The England international midfielder has previously faced the Reds while on the books of Arsenal, but has spent the last six years at Anfield – becoming a Champions League and Premier League title winner along the way. Oxlade-Chamberlain will be leaving as a free agent when his contract expires this summer, but the 29-year-old has suggested that he will find another club in the English top-flight – allowing him to cross paths with some familiar faces at some point.

WHAT THEY SAID: Oxlade-Chamberlain has told Liverpool’s official website of his future plans and what would happen if he were to find the target against the Reds with his next employer: “I don't know what happens next. It will be a busy summer chasing after him [his boy] and then seeing what comes next. But yeah, I'm sure I will probably be back here at some point in the difficult away dressing room, against these fans – I've done it before. I'll try to do my best and if I manage to score or anything, I won't be celebrating, I promise you that, because I've got so much respect for everything that I've been through here. But I told Virgil I might actually be able to dribble past him for the first time ever!”

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Oxlade-Chamberlain has endured his fair share of injury issues while with Liverpool, but he has taken in 146 appearances for the club and scored 18 goals.
