Liverpool learn Oxlade-Chamberlain’s ‘best-case scenario’

Date published: Monday 14th May 2018 1:54

Liverpool may have to cope without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for the first four months of next season.

The midfielder injured his knee in the club’s enthralling 5-2 Champions League semi-final first-leg win over Roma.

It soon became apparent that Oxlade-Chamberlain would miss the rest of the campaign, while he would also be sidelined for the World Cup.

But the 24-year-old could be out for much longer than first anticipated after undergoing surgery earlier this month.

The Liverpool Echo say ‘the operation was a success’, but it will inevitably push his planned return back a little further.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has begun his ‘rehabilitation programme’ with the club, but a six-month spell out is now considered ‘the best-case scenario’.

Let’s hope Naby Keita is good.
