'It's very nice to see Ox back - he's a big addition to our team'

Jordan Henderson says 'it is very nice to see Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain' return to action following months on the sidelines due to injury.

The Liverpool captain asserted that the England midfielder Chamberlain is a 'big addition' to Jurgen Klopp's squad that ran riot over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Chamberlain, who sustained a knee injury in pre-season, made his comeback in Liverpool's 7-0 win over the Eagles, his first appearance of the 2020-21 season.

And, Reds skipper Henderson was delighted to see the former Arsenal and Southampton man 'looking sharp again' after replacing Roberto Firmino in the 75th minute and laying an assist for Mohamed Salah's second goal at Selhurst Park.

"Very nice to see Ox back," Henderson told

"He's been working extremely hard to get back. Looking sharp again and I thought he did well when he came on.

"So the more minutes he can get, the better really because he's a big addition to our team."

"We've got a little bit of a break going into the next game but after that it comes thick and fast. So we need to be ready for that.

"Hopefully we can have a couple more coming back from injury or [get] fitness levels even higher. So it's an important period for us over the next few weeks."

Liverpool will spend Christmas Day on top of the Premier League table, however, Henderson hopes they keep that momentum going.

"They [Palace] are a good team," he said. "I think we've seen this season they make it difficult for teams and have had some really good results.

"For us, it's important after a big week to pick up the three points again here at a tough place to come.

"It's very important for us and another good step going forward. We need to keep going."
