Liverpool vs Arsenal - Pre-match talk
Liverpool fans will be able to call Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as one of their own for many years to come, as the footballer has agreed to sign a contract extension with the club. The Ox spent quite a bit of time away from the pitch due to a nasty knee injury, which makes the player even more thankful for this opportunity.
