Chamberlain to miss most of the new season

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is likely to miss the whole of the forthcoming season, with the Premier League club saying Wednesday that they were already aware of the grim scenario.

The 24-year-old suffered multiple knee ligament damage during the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Roma in April and underwent successful surgery eight days later.

Manager Jurgen Klopp told liverpoolfc.com that he was aware that the former Arsenal star would likely be unavailable for the 2018/2019 season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Liverpool last summer from Arsenal in a £35million deal but the injury ruled him out of the Champions League final against Real Madrid and the World Cup with England.
