Liverpool attacking midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had an excellent first half in the 3-2 defeat to Borussia Dortmund last night.
The 25-year-old showed off a fantastic piece of skill to get beyond two defenders:

I’m hyped, hope he has a beastly season. Also hope Wilson and Brewster get a shot. They both look good

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that having the England international fit and available is like having a new player.
The former Arsenal midfielder played just twice last season after an extensive rehabilitation following an anterior cruciate ligament injury.
However, Oxlade-Chamberlain looks to be keen to make up for lost time during pre-season. With Naby Keita out injured, he does have a chance to stake his claim for a start in the Community Shield against Manchester City in two weeks time.
Before that, though, the Reds still have a number of friendlies to contend with. They face Sevilla tomorrow evening.
