Oxlade-Chamberlain plus whizkid added to Liverpool Champions League squad

Fit-again Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been included in Liverpool's Champions League squad for the knockout stages of the competition.

The 25-year-old midfielder has been sidelined for 10 months with a knee ligament injury and is due to return to full training in February.

Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered the injury during Liverpool's Champions League semi-final against Roma last April.

Liverpool face Bayern Munich in last-16 first leg at Anfield on 19 February.

Dutch defender Ki-Jana Hoever, 17, has also been added to the 25-man squad, with clubs permitted to register a maximum of three new eligible players at this stage.
