Then you can imagine that it's hard.

The 24-year-old suffered the injury in the early stages of the Champions League semi-final first leg as England worldwide falls awkwardly in challenging former Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov for the ball.

However, the 24-year-old required lengthy treatment from the Liverpool medical team after suffering a knee injury while tackling Aleksandar Kolarov in the 18th minute.

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

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp fears Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set for a long injury layoff.

Critics said it would make it too hard for federal agents to find and deport ex-convicts who are a danger to communities. In Dana Point, the council voted 3-2 to adopt a resolution supporting Orange County's efforts to join Sessions' lawsuit.

Klopp bemoaned the number of setbacks that have struck Liverpool this season, as injuries to Emre Can, Adam Lallana, Joel Matip and Nathaniel Clyne - the last of whom returned to the bench on Tuesday - have limited the Reds' depth.

And it looks like Oxlade-Chamberlain's spot in Gareth Southgate's England squad could be in jeopardy if the prognosis comes back as negative.

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

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. "The biggest blow for the mood is the injury of Chamberlain because we lost a fantastic player", he said. "The squad doesn't get bigger at the moment so we need to be creative in the next few games".
