The 24-year-old started England’s crucial World Cup Qualifying match against Slovakia ar Wembley tonight and it’s fair to say that the new Reds man did not have the best of first halves.
While he made some driving runs, his distribution was poor and his performance was summed up but a dreadful shot that sailed high and wide over the bar, which was while the Three Lions were 1-0 down.
Chelsea won the race to grab his signature for £35m plus add-ons down to the fact that Oxlade-Chamberlain wants to play in a more midfield role, while Antonio Conte would have played him as a right wing-back.
The Blues ended up signing Davide Zappacosta instead from Torino to fill the void down the right hand side, and on the Ox’s current showing it doesn’t to have been a bad move.
Do you think Chelsea have missed out by not signing Oxlade-Chamberlain?
