Liverpool FC midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain insists he is trying his best to remain upbeat as he continues his recovery from a serious knee injury.

The England international enjoyed a stellar year with Anfield last term, playing a key role as the club finished fourth in the Premier League and reached the Champions League final.

Unfortunately, Oxlade-Chamberlain sustained significant knee ligament damage back in April, which instantly ruled him out of the European Cup showdown with Real Madrid and is likely to see him miss the remainder of the current season.

The 24-year-old has had to watch on from the sidelines as Jurgen Klopp’s men have won all four of their games at the start of the 2018-19 Premier League campaign, but he is adamant that he is doing everything he can to return as quickly as possible.

He told Sky Sports on Saturday night: “It is a very serious injury. It can happen to any of us at any time and that’s obviously something that’s never easy to deal with and get over.

“I’m trying to stay positive, that’s the sort of character I am. I feel that’s the best way to move things forward. I’m in good spirits and I’m progressing for sure.”

Liverpool FC have stated that they do not consider Chamberlain’s injury to be a career-ending issue, but they are making sure that all the necessary precautions are taken during his extensive recovery period.

The dynamic midfielder is approaching his prime years and supporters will hope he can return to full fitness before the end of the season, to once again help the team contend for silverware
