Jurgen Klopp's update on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain did not sound good

Liverpool suffered an early blow during their UEFA Champions League semi-final against AS Roma on Tuesday, as star midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had to come off with an injury in the first half.

Oxlade-Chamberlain spent some time receiving treatment on the sidelines after sustaining an injury while challenging Aleksandar Kolarov.

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

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp certainly didn't sound too optimistic about Oxlade-Chamberlain when asked for an update after the final whistle.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has enjoyed a breakout season in 2017-18, his first with the Reds after a lengthy spell with Arsenal.

The injury news also comes as a blow to England's World Cup hopes with the midfielder widely expected to have played a big role for the Three Lions in Russian Federation on the back of his massively improved form since joining the Merseysiders from Arsenal.

Saudi coalition air raids have repeatedly struck civilian targets while trying to target Houthi forces during the three-year war. The Houthis rebels allied with Iran, get a grip on much of Yemen , Sanaa, for example, capital.

Asked if his season was over, the manager replied: "It looks like this, unfortunately".

"We don't know exactly but if the medical department are quite concerned without a scan, you can imagine it's hard", Klopp said. The season is not that long anymore, so it doesn't look good.

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.

"I'm a very positive person and I hope it's not only a few weeks and it's not that bad". "The biggest blow for the mood is the injury of Chamberlain because we lost a fantastic player", he said.

It's doubtful the 24-year-old will be able to return if the Reds reach the Champions League final on May 26 in Kiev.
