Liverpool’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been starring in his new role in midfield this season following his forty-million pound move from Arsenal in last summer’s transfer window. With such a large fee forked out for the England international, he will be subject to the understandable pressure of consistently performing at a high level. Already bagging twenty-one appearances for Liverpool this season and three goals, he is already staking a claim to be a regular starter on the team sheet.
On The Wing Or In Midfield?
But has he done enough to justify his claim he is a midfielder and not winger? Playing majority of his footballing career as a winger, he still for me hasn’t proven himself enough to make his claim as an out and out midfielder. With the World Cup fast approaching, he has more to do to give Gareth Southgate a selection dilemma. Currently England already have talented midfielders to choose from, with some new names coming up and Arsenals Jack Wilshere starting to consistently stay fit, it looks a struggle for Oxlade-Chamberlain to be a starter in that England midfield.
With Liverpool still in the race for a top 4 finish and still in the Champion’s League he has enough game time to prove himself as a top contender for that strong English midfield, a few more goals and top assisting performances may have to force Southgate’s hand and use him as one his midfielders. If you want to see if the how he performs against his old Arsenal rivals this Sunday why not watch it at one our Stonegate Pubs and enjoy a real sports pub atmosphere!
