Oxlade-Chamberlain looks highly likely to go to the World Cup following his recent performances for Liverpool.
When the Ox was signed by Jurgen Klopp in the Summer for £34 million questions were asked about if he would improve, or even get into, Liverpool’s midfield.
The former Arsenal man has settled into life at Anfield seamlessly though and his goal-laden performance against Man City was the pinnacle of his Liverpool career so far and shows just how much he has improved under Klopp in a relatively short amount of time.
Since his move at the end of the summer transfer window, Chamberlain has made 20 appearances including 8 starts in the Premier League, scoring 3 goals and providing 3 assists.
With Coutinho making the move to Barcelona, the 24 year-old’s position in Klopp’s team is more secure and his form should see him sustain a run of starts and with the World Cup around the corner the timing could not be better.
He has been the most backed player in the 24 hours to make the plane to Russia, accounting for 26.4% of bets. The Ox’s current best price of evens will surely not last long if he continues his good form and will fancy his chances of adding to his 30 caps this summer.
Oddschecker spokesperson, George Elek: “Liverpool fans around the world were cursing their luck when Philippe Coutinho finally sealed his move to Barcelona, but his transfer looks to have opened the door for Oxlade-Chamberlain.
“Playing in his favoured central position vacated by the departed Brazilian, he starred in Liverpool's win over the Champions elect. England need some drive in midfield, and more performances like that will leave manager Southgate no choice but to include him in his squad.”
