Liverpool star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed how he overcame an ankle injury to face Crystal Palace.

The English midfielder had to be withdrawn from last weekend's win over Brentford.

But Oxlade-Chamberlain bounced back to score in the win over Palace on Sunday.

"Obviously I came off last week with my ankle and I've been pushing and working really hard this week to make sure I got back for this game," Oxlade-Chamberlain told the club's website.

"I managed to turn it around and it was nice to get back out there and I'm happy to be able to contribute again with a goal. I'm obviously filling in down that right side while Mo's away; it's quite big shoes to fill there in terms of goals and providing that threat in behind.

"But that's what I tried to do and I managed to do it last week with a goal, and I was glad to back that up again today with another goal.

"Ultimately I think it helped us, it gave us that little buffer for that little dip we had. But it's more to do with the performance and the stuff I could do off the ball as well… especially first half, I thought we did that all really well: winning the ball back and linking up together. But of course, a goal is always nice."
