You know it's not promising when a manager doesn't rattle off the typical response about waiting for the scan before providing an update.

.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was hurt while sliding in to tackle Aleksandar Kolarov in the 15th minute, with the former Arsenal player treated on the touchline before being carried away on a stretcher.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's prospects of going to the World Cup were thrown into doubt last night after he suffered a knee injury that Jürgen Klopp fears has ended his season.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said the England international's season looked to be over.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said after that game.

And it poses the potential risk of Oxlade-Chamberlain missing the opportunity to involve himself in England's up-coming World Cup campaign and also see out his season at Anfield.

"The biggest problem that we have today 100 percent is that we lost Oxlade-Chamberlain, who played brilliant as long he was in", Klopp said in a postgame television interview.

"I'm a very positive person and I hope it's not only a few weeks and it's not that bad".

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.

"Oxlade, it's probably a really bad injury. The squad doesn't get bigger at the moment so we need to be creative in the next few games". "It can not be a little bit less, because we really need the crowd".
