Oxlade-Chamberlain's World Cup hopes in doubt

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Oxlade-Chamberlain was hurt while sliding in to tackle Aleksandar Kolarov in the 15th minute, with the former Arsenal player treated on the touchline before being carried away on a stretcher.

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is seemingly facing a period on the sidelines with the England worldwide picking up a suspected knee injury against Roma on Tuesday night.

Klopp confirmed at the end of the match that the injury looks "bad", but will require a scan.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was selected for the 2014 World Cup but was unable to feature due to a knee issue sustained in a warm-up friendly against Ecuador.

"There's not long left in the season anymore".

Gareth Southgate's England team was likely to have included Oxlade-Chamberlain, too, and the manager's final 23-man squad will surely need a replacement unless his knee injury is less serious than anticipated. I'm a very positive person and I hope that it only feels bad but is not that bad.

Liverpool were able to recover from the early loss of Oxlade-Chamberlain to thrash Roma 5-2 last night to put one foot in the Champions League final with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino both scoring twice.

Under manager Jurgen Klopp, the 24-year-old made a slow start, but he's become more important to the side as the season has progressed.

"If we can say that already before the scan, that's never good news so that means for us it's a massive blow, of course".

"Oxlade is probably a really bad injury, ' Klopp told BT Sport. The squad doesn't get bigger at the moment so we need to be creative in the next few games".
