The former Arsenal and Southampton man only marked his return to the first team after a year out with injury when he came on as a substitute in the 5-0 demolition of bottom club, Huddersfield Town, on Friday night at Anfield.

And it almost ended in a fairytale for the England midfielder as he reminded fans at Anfield why the club paid north of £35 million for him from the Gunners, going on a mazy run against the Terriers and playing a one-two with Mohamed Salah before going close to getting a goal.

But before that game, the Reds revealed their new kit for the 2019/20 season in a tour of the stadium cum kit unveil hosted by Oxlade-Chamberlain himself with some help from Virgil van Dijk, who has gone on to be named 2018/19 PFA Player of the Year.

In the clip, Oxlade-Chamberlain shares banter with Van Dijk, for whom he provided the assist for the Dutch defender’s first goal for the club. He also reminded fans of a scorching effort he scored against Manchester City in last season’s Champions League quarter-final.

The goal, an unstoppable long range effort in the 20th minute, was the second in a 3-0 first leg win over Guardiola’s team, with Jurgen Klopp’s side winning the return leg at the Manchester City Stadium 2-1 thanks to second half goals from Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Oxlande-Chamberlain, however, would suffer a ruptured knee ligaments in Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final with AS Roma last April.

A year later and he would be available for selection in another Champions League semi-final for the Reds, who face Lionel Messi and Barcelona on Wednesday night at Camp Nou.
