Bench cam footage emerges of former Arsenal star Oxlade-Chamberlain’s reaction to Liverpool equaliser

Super-sub Roberto Firmino levelled the scores in the 87th minute to send Kopites in attendance and around the world into ecstasy.

But former Arsenal star Oxlade-Chamberlain kept his emotions to himself as the fans and subs around him went crazy.

Footage of the England international not celebrating was captured as the cameras showed an irate Mikel Arteta reacting to his side dropping two points.

The Ox stayed in his seat and looked on at Arteta as the Spaniard lamented the equaliser.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is seemingly set to leave Liverpool in the summer as his contract expires at the end of the season.

And the Reds have reportedly decided not to extend the midfielder’s Anfield stay.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano tweeted last month: “No changes on Oxlade-Chamberlain and Liverpool, expected to part ways in June.

“He’s gonna leave as a free agent.”


Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Liverpool from Arsenal in the summer of 2017 for a fee in the region of £35m.

The former Southampton starlet has made 146 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s troops, contributing 18 goals and 15 assists.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has been blighted by injury during his time at Anfield, which Kop hero Dietmar Hamann reckons is over.

Speaking after the Reds’ 3-1 win over Aston Villa on Boxing Day, the German said: “Oxlade-Chamberlain did okay today but I think his time is up as well.”

Liverpool will be back in action on Monday, travelling to Elland Road to take on Leeds United.
