While I think Ox is still a valuable member of the squad, it will be a struggle for him to become a regular starter unless he is able to make himself undroppable (when fit).

Obviously with Jota coming in, he will find one route to starting games blocked off to a certain extent. I think both him and Keita will start less games because of VVDs absence as we will go with more workmanlike midfields with Thiago being the creative hub.

With Fabinho possibly switching to the CB position regularly, there is a midfield slot open up for OX the grab and he should go for it.

You've got a good point, I can see him being sold next season to make funds available for a new CB. Hendo, Keita, Fabinho, Thiago and Gini are all ahead of him for that CM spot. Shaq is a better forward option a d I think Jones will take Ox's spot going forward.

Just don't see the player we had before his injury, which is such a pity. Great guy and obviously very popular.

Hope he proves me wrong and goes on to have a fabulous season though.

Like him as a player and he seems a good lad too. Just worry that injuries will prevent him from fully reaching his potential. He seems to take a while to regain his form post layoff too.

Just shows our progress though when a player of his ability isnt a guaranteed starter.

Id just love him to have an uninterrupted run from now on to see what he can do.

Maybe a loan spell for him when he comes back to get his match fitness back. I can't see him getting into our team at the moment unless we get serious injuries in midfield.

Love him to get back to his best with us though - seems a really nice guy.

Really gutted for Ox, as he would have been having lots of game time recently. Let's hope this set back isn't a career changer, and that he comes back all guns blazing.

Do we have any ideas on a possible return date?

Really like everything about him. But its been a few years now and he hasnt had a long run in the team. I know Klopp likes to rotate the midfield but I hate to say that the injuries may be taking their toll on him. I remember Jamie redknapp and how he just couldnt get back to playing at a certain level so he left. Where all hoping you get back mate..ynwa

Still only 27. He just needs the injuries to settle for a bit and allow a consistent period of uninterrupted play. Every time he's out, it takes a fair while for him to get into the swing of things again (which isn't surprising). I hope he can get fit again and get back to his best.

I do worry that he, Matip and Naby are all the new Lallana's of the team. Really useful first team players who just cannot stay fit long enough to get into their best form.

Wasn't it estimated to be about 3 months? If so, he'd be due back late November.

Think what Vinay is saying is in an absolute emergency he could play RB Im sure he would do it for a game or two if needed just like Milner doesnt like playing LB but does it if need be.

It would have to be a bad injury crisis though as we have TAA Williams Gomez Milner possibly Fabinho and Henderson ahead of him !

I think Oxlade-Chamberlain may be lucky in that there is the possibility that both Wijnaldum and Milner could depart, otherwise he could have been sold.

If Gini and Milner depart, we have no reliable midfielders who can stay fit. Only Fabinho.

Hendo injury issues of late.
Ox made of glass.
Naby made of glass
Gini - Likely to leave
Milner - Likely to leave
Curtis Jones - Okay so far injury wise.
Thiago - Historically bad but so far so good (bar the dirty Evs doing him dirty)
Fabinho - not injury prone.


Back to Ox - when is he actually back? He's been injured since Sept? I think the club is hiding the extent of his injury.

He's back when he's back. The club don't hide anything. The club has always been reluctant to give out detailed information about a players injury because that sort of thing is confidential. At this stage, he's unavailable and needs to recover and get fit and ready again. That's all there is to it. That being said, we have players who can fill that gap now and that takes a bit of pressure off in terms of having to rush him back.

He can play right back, not that it's where he wants to play of course, but might be needed there at some point.

Can't see him being able to fill in at RB, he is still probably a few weeks away from full fitness and the demands of the role may mean that by the time he has match fitness, TAA will be back. We will need him in squad with all these games so let's hope he will be back soon.

Really don't get doubting his professionalism, if he wasn't one, he wouldn't have been here for once. He did so well to come back from a year long injury and perform well (even if he wasn't at his 17/18 form). How could anyone doubt him?

As for the bold part, couldn't find it online. All I found was here saying she was cooking lots of food for him, but he's an athlete so I guess he eats more than average. I mean, last I saw him he looked like he had 0% body fat and he looked that way since his Arsenal days.

Class footballer on his day but he's got it all to prove again now. Plus a few people have bantered me calling him Mr. Perrie Edwards - not cool, but there's a message in there somewhere.

We all know he's a nice guy, but I think we all want him to just do his talking on the pitch now and churn out a season of top notch performances.

What was his injury exactly? It's been so long that I don't even remember what he's recovering from.
