Oxlade-Chamberlain, 25, was a pundit for Sky Sports coverage of England’s Uefa Nations League defeat to Spain and insists he is staying positive about his recovery.

He told Sky Sports: “It is a very serious injury and it can happen to any of us at any time so that’s obviously something that is never easy to deal with and get over.

“But I’m making progress and I’m trying to stay positive, that’s the sort of character that I am and I’m feeling that is the best way to move things forward so I am in good spirits and I’m progressing for sure.

Oxlade-Chamberlain who quit Arsenal to move to Anfield last year revealed his horror knee injury that cost him a place in the Three Lions World Cup squad is the biggest setback of his career.

Gareth Southgate had earmarked Ox to be part of his midfield in Russia and the Liverpool man admitted England’s ride to the semi-finals without him was hard to watch.

He added: “I can’t sit here and lie and say it was easy, it was really difficult.

“I had a realistic chance of playing but at the same time I went into England fan mode.

“It was amazing to see the boys do so well and it was really exciting back home, so it was hard but I was so happy that they managed to do so well.”
