  • Oxlade-Chamberlain left the field on a stretcher after suffering a knee injury

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain appears to be a major doubt for the World Cup after the England midfielder suffered a "really bad injury" in Liverpool's Champions League win over Roma.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was involved in a challenge with Roma's Aleksandar Kolarov and underwent lengthy treatment on the pitch before being carried back to the dressing room on a stretcher, and Georginio Wijnaldum came on in his place.

"If you can say that before the scan then it's not good news". The season is not that long anymore, so it doesn't look good.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has been in fine form in recent months and was picked to start in midfield during Liverpool's crucial semi-final first leg at Anfield on Tuesday night.

Klopp confirmed at the end of the match that the injury looks "bad", but will require a scan. "The biggest blow for the mood is the injury of Chamberlain because we lost a fantastic player", he said.

"I'm a very positive person and still hope it only feels bad, but is not that bad".

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said after that game.

Klopp said Oxlade-Chamberlain's injury took some gloss off Liverpool's brilliant performance in the first leg of the semifinals, in which they conceded two late goals to give Roma a lifeline.

"So that means for us it's a massive blow of course. The squad doesn't get bigger at the moment so we need to be creative in the next few games".

Oxlade-Chamberlain looked certain to be included in the England squad for the finals in Russian Federation but his place is now in serious doubt with Gareth Southgate set to name his provisional squad by May 14th.

Trent Alexander-Arnold added: "Obviously we're all gutted for him".
