Liverpool fans react to Oxlade-Chamberlain update

Liverpool took a huge step towards the Champions League final courtesy of a 5-2 win over Roma in the first leg of their semi-final at Anfield on Tuesday night.

The Reds were actually 5-0 ahead and cruising, but did concede twice in the final nine minutes to keep Roma just about in the hunt ahead of the second leg.

The victory has come at a price, however, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain picking up what looked to be a serious knee injury in the first half of the match.

The midfielder ultimately headed down the tunnel on a stretcher in the 23rd minute of the match, and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said after the first leg that the England international has picked up ‘probably a really bad injury’.

Oxlade-Chamberlain took his time to settle at Liverpool, but the former Arsenal midfielder has been excellent for the Merseyside outfit in recent weeks, and the injury at such a vital period of the season is a huge blow for both his club and indeed his country.
