Alexander Mark David Oxlade-Chamberlain /ˌɒksld ˈmbərlɪn/ (born 15 August 1993) is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Liverpool and the England national team.

After rising to prominence with Southampton during the 2010–11 season aged 17, he signed for Arsenal in August 2011. Scoring twice in his first three matches for the club, Oxlade-Chamberlain became the youngest English goalscorer in UEFA Champions League history and also claimed a regular place in the England under-21 team. Over his six seasons at the Emirates Stadium, he played 198 games and scored 20 goals, winning the FA Cup three times. He signed for Liverpool in August 2017.

Oxlade-Chamberlain made his debut for the senior England team on 26 May 2012 in a 1–0 win against Norway in a friendly. Following this, he received a surprise call-up to the England squad for UEFA Euro 2012, becoming the second youngest player ever to represent England in the European Championships behind Wayne Rooney. He was also called up for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Early life[edit]

Born in Portsmouth, Hampshire,[4] Oxlade-Chamberlain attended the independent St John's College in Southsea, Portsmouth.[5] He grew up as an Arsenal supporter.[6]

Club career[edit]

Southampton[edit]

Oxlade-Chamberlain joined the Southampton Academy at the age of seven.[7] On 2 March 2010, he made his first-team debut for Southampton, at 16 years 199 days, coming off the bench in a 5–0 victory over Huddersfield Town[8] and became the club's second youngest ever appearance maker behind Theo Walcott.[9] Oxlade-Chamberlain appeared as an 82nd-minute substitute for Jason Puncheon on 8 May 2010 in the final match of the season against Southend United.[10] At the beginning of the 2010–11 season, Oxlade-Chamberlain made his first competitive start on 10 August against Bournemouth in the first round of the League Cup. During the match, he scored the second goal of Southampton's 2–0 victory, his first senior goal.[11]

On 20 August 2010, shortly after his 17th birthday, Oxlade-Chamberlain signed his first professional contract lasting for three years.[12] His first league start came in a 2–0 loss at home to Rochdale on 4 September 2010.[citation needed] His first league goal came in a 2–1 victory over Oldham Athletic on 23 October 2010, which proved to be the match winner.[13] He scored two more goals and also got an assist in a 4–0 win over Dagenham & Redbridge on 2 November 2010, when he was voted Man of the Match in a league match for the first time.[14]

Oxlade-Chamberlain finished the season with nine goals as Southampton were promoted to the Championship; he was named in the PFA League One Team of the Year for the 2010–11 season.[15] He was subsequently the subject of transfer speculation and in June his father, Mark Chamberlain, stated he was eager for his son to join Arsenal "as soon as possible" to "continue his development".[15]

Arsenal[edit]

On 8 August 2011, Oxlade-Chamberlain signed for Premier League club Arsenal.[16] Although neither club involved revealed details of the contractual arrangements, press sources indicated that the fee was a £12 million initial payment which could rise to £15 million with "add-ons".[17]

On 28 August 2011, he made his Arsenal debut in the 8–2 defeat away to Manchester United, as a 62nd-minute substitute for Francis Coquelin,[18] thus becoming the 150th player to represent Arsenal in the Premier League.[19] On 20 September 2011, he scored his first goal for Arsenal in the 58th minute of a League Cup match against Shrewsbury Town, with a drive from 25 yards. Arsenal won 3–1.[20]

On 28 September 2011, Oxlade-Chamberlain scored the opening goal in the eighth minute of his UEFA Champions League debut against Greek team Olympiacos, running diagonally onto an Alex Song long pass and past several defenders before finishing into the corner of the goal. In so doing, he became the youngest Englishman to score in the Champions League, surpassing teammate Theo Walcott's record.[21]

Oxlade-Chamberlain started his first Premier League match for Arsenal in a 2–1 defeat to Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on 22 January 2012, contributing an assist to a Robin van Persie goal. Arsène Wenger replaced him with Andrey Arshavin in the 78th minute, with the score at 1–1. Not only did Arsenal fans boo the decision to take Oxlade-Chamberlain off, Van Persie also remonstrated with the manager.[22] On 4 February 2012, Oxlade-Chamberlain celebrated his first two Premier League goals in a home match against Blackburn Rovers which finished in a 7–1 victory to Arsenal.[23] Following this match, Wenger praised Oxlade-Chamberlain for his fast development.[24]

After the second leg of the Champions League second round against Milan, Oxlade-Chamberlain earned many plaudits for his impressive run of form, and for his display against strong European opposition; he was described by Marco van Basten as a "gem",[25] while then-Arsenal captain Robin van Persie stated Oxlade-Chamberlain was the future of both Arsenal and England.[26]

At the end of his first season in the Premier League, Oxlade-Chamberlain was nominated for PFA Young Player of the Year; he was the youngest player on the shortlist and he eventually lost out to Tottenham Hotspur's Kyle Walker, four years his senior.[27]

On 23 February 2016, he suffered a serious knee injury in a 2–0 home defeat by Barcelona in the Champions League,[45] which was initially expected to prevent him playing for up to eight weeks.[46] A further injury in May during training prevented his return for the rest of the season, including the summer UEFA Euro 2016 tournament.[47]

On 18 July, Liverpool confirmed that Oxlade-Chamberlain will miss the majority of the 2018–19 season, with Klopp stating: “It feels like now is an appropriate time to tell people that for Ox this coming season will be about focusing on recovery and rehab".[60][61]

He was called up to the England Under-19 squad to face Germany on 8 February 2011,[64] but on 2 February he was promoted into the England under-21 team for a friendly match away to Italy on 8 February.[65] In the match, he came on as a 60th-minute substitute, replacing Henri Lansbury. Shortly after his introduction, he showed a great turn of pace to create a chance as he raced past the Italian full-back and hit the byline, but no England player could reach his cross. In turn, he had a chance from a cross by Josh McEachran, but could only hit a weak shot at the goalkeeper. England lost the match 1–0 with the Italians scoring from a penalty two minutes from time.[66]

Oxlade-Chamberlain made his first start for the Under-21s against Azerbaijan on 1 September 2011 and claimed two assists during the game.[67] He also made a brief appearance against Israel on 5 September, coming on in the second half to claim three assists (including winning a penalty) to push England from a 1–0 deficit to a 4–1 comeback victory.[68] A month later, he scored a hat-trick against Iceland as England won 3–0 in Reykjavík.[69] On 10 November 2011, Oxlade-Chamberlain put in another man of the match performance as the under-21s again trounced Iceland, this time 5–0, to remain top of Group 8.[citation needed] On 29 February 2012, he netted a late penalty as England made certain of at least a play-off spot for the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship with a 4–0 victory over Belgium.[70]

Personal life[edit]

Oxlade-Chamberlain is the son of former Stoke City, Portsmouth and England international player Mark Chamberlain.[80] His uncle, Neville Chamberlain, was also a professional footballer, as is his younger brother, Christian, who plays for Notts County.[81]

Oxlade-Chamberlain attended St John's College, Portsmouth. The Sun revealed that Oxlade-Chamberlain nearly chose rugby union over football when he was offered a trial at London Irish. Oxlade-Chamberlain played rugby as a scrum half or full back.

My senior school didn't play football. It was a rugby and cricket school and as I was on a sports scholarship, I was forced to play rugby. I played scrum-half or full-back and I was all right at it. I got a trial for London Irish but couldn't do it because Southampton wouldn't let me.[82]

Oxlade-Chamberlain was also an avid cricketer with him playing as a wicketkeeper, bowler and opening batsman with south east Hampshire. He was offered trials as a wicketkeeper batsman with Hampshire, but declined because it conflicted with his youth footballing duties.[83]
