Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to miss the remainder of Liverpool’s pre-season programme and the beginning of the Premier League season after sustaining a knock to his knee during training.

The midfielder picked up the injury during a challenge in Austria and has returned to Melwood to begin his rehabilitation with the club’s medical team.

On the injury, Jurgen Klopp had this to say: “Really unfortunate. An unfortunate situation as well; it was a challenge.

“It looks like it is very similar to what Hendo had, which keeps him out for we don’t know for sure exactly how long, but for sure this pre-season he will not make a game, Arsenal for sure not and then we will see. The next game is probably two weeks later, but I don’t know.

“We have to wait but it is far away from being perfect, of course. It is really hard for him and hard for us, but it is not to change.”
