Liverpool fans have taken to social media to let know their frustrations and anger at key Reds midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain picking up an injury during their 5-2 win over Roma.
The midfielder, who has been in top form for Jurgen Klopp’s side this campaign since his move from Arsenal in the summer, hobbled off in the early stages of the match, only to be replaced by Georginio Wijnaldum.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has been a vital part of the Reds’ success this season, scoring five and assisting eight in 42 appearances for Klopp’s side, however it looks like they may have to go the rest of the season without him following last night’s incident.
As per Liverpool’s official club website, Klopp even went at far to say “It looks like this, unfortunately” when asked whether the former Gunners star would be out for the remainder of the season, a bitter blow on an otherwise fantastic night for the Merseyside club.
Liverpool’s fans didn’t take too kindly to the incident either, with some taking to Twitter to voice their concerns over the player’s injury.
Klopp uncharacteristically downbeat in his presser because of the Oxlade-Chamberlain injury. Strange mood after winning 5-2, but just shows how important Oxlade has become to the team on and off the pitch.

Hope it’s not too serious for Oxlade-Chamberlain. Was superb against City and deserves to contribute to the rest of the campaign!

Chamberlain injury is absolutely gutting. In the form of his life and now set to miss the biggest game of his career. My initial thought was it looked like a possible ACL. Touch wood it’s not that severe, but Klopp seems very worried. Awful, awful luck.

Roma scoring 2 goals isn’t even the worse part of the night, Chamberlain’s injury has got me more worried.

Oxlade Chamberlain confirmed to have a serious knee injury, gutted for him. He was in the best form of his career.

Chamberlain most likely set to miss the rest of the season and the World Cup. So, so gutted for him….

That’s a monumental blow for Liverpool. Oxlade-Chamberlain has been brilliant in midfield of late. Has such drive going forward and a willing runner in defence. A huge loss.

Heartbroken for Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Oxlade-Chamberlain issue ‘probably a really bad injury’, says Klopp. Massive shame.
