Gomez is yet to play in 2019 after picking up an ankle problem last winter, while Oxlade-Chamberlain has only just returned to training with his team-mates after a long-term knee injury.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has not featured for almost 12 months, but is expected to play before the close of the season.

The midfielder’s return could serve as a major boost for Liverpool who are hoping to end the campaign as Premier League champions.
‘Ox is doing 70 per cent of team training,’ Klopp said.
‘He trains full, but not as much as the others. Then he leaves a bit early to do something else and the things he needs.

(Picture: Getty)‘Everyone is always looking for a reaction, but nothing has happened yet.
‘We have to prepare him for his entire career, not just one particular game. When he’s in training it looks very nice.’
The next international break will take place at the end of March and Klopp thinks Gomez will be able to return to action when club fixtures resume.

‘I think after the international break Joe should be okay,’ Klopp said.
‘If nobody gets injured before then we’ll have a proper choice. Joe is doing his rehab and looks good, big steps, outside running and all these things.’
