The attacker scored in the win against Brentford but rolled his ankle and had to come off, with natural concerns springing up over when he'd next be available.
He shook things off quickly to feature against Palace, though, and got himself on the scoresheet again with him making it 2-0 on the afternoon.
Indeed, he has reflected on that speaking to the club's official media channels:
Ox: “I’m obviously filling in down that right side while Mo’s away; it’s quite big shoes to fill there in terms of goals and providing that threat in behind.”
Anfield Watch Verdict
Oxlade-Chamberlain hasn't had much luck with injuries during his time at Liverpool but he has been more available this season and that is a good sign.
It's tough for him to break into the side permanently and stay there but he is doing a good job with the opportunity he has right now.
If he keeps scoring, he can't be dropped, it's as simple as that.
