Oxlade-Chamberlain is back fit this season and determined to make up for lost time

Oxlade-Chamberlain, who moved to Anfield from Arsenal in the summer of 2017 for £35million, missed the majority of last season through injury but has returned to full fitness this term.

“I feel like I missed out on a year, which I obviously did, so it’s really exciting for me to be able to sign,” Oxlade-Chamberlain told liverpoolfc.com.

“It’s something that I feel is an opportunity to give that year back and make up for lost time – and hopefully put in some good performances to make amends for not being around last year.

“You’ve got to count your blessings every time you get an opportunity like this, you don’t get the chance to play for Liverpool Football Club every day.

“I am really excited to be able to extend my time here.”

Oxlade-Chamberlain had finally found his form when his season was prematurely ended by a knee injury in a Champions League semi-final first leg in April 2018.

He has already shown signs of reaching those levels again in his three appearances this season and he is keen to return to his very best.

“I hope that I can do some special things like I did before I got injured and, most of all, be a part of this group of players that go on to hopefully win more things,” he added.

“I’m really excited to see what the future holds for us all and I look forward to seeing them every game moving forward.

“I can promise the supporters that I’ll give them absolutely everything moving forward.

“There might be times where I have bad games and good games and moments where it’s not so good, but I’ll always work through those moments and give my everything to correct them and keep pushing this team forward.”
