Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Faces An Anxious Wait To Discover The Severity Of The Injury After Scoring Against Brentford



The midfielder, who scored the crucial second goal in his side’s 3-0 win, played in the position that usually belongs to Mo Salah, high up on the right, and proved an able deputy with a polished performance.

But Oxlade-Chamberlain, whose Anfield career has been punctured by a series of fitness issues, was forced off six minutes after scoring having rolled his ankle.

He immediately gestured to the bench that he was not able to continue and Klopp gave him a consoling pat on the neck as he went straight down the tunnel. He will undergo a scan on Monday.

‘He was really good,’ said Klopp. ‘That is the shadow on the game. We don’t know yet but he rolled his ankle and now we hope it is nothing serious. We will get the further or final information earliest tomorrow.

‘Unfortunately that is the life of a footballer. No one did anything wrong, it just happened. It is nothing to do with Alex, it could have happened to anyone. Let’s just wait as we know nothing about it.’

Klopp was otherwise thrilled with what he saw from Liverpool, who had looked so off-colour in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Arsenal three days earlier. He hopes this performances augurs well for the return at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday.

‘Winning is good for confidence, definitely,’ said Klopp. ‘I don’t think we struggled confidence-wise. We can pretty much cut off the public noise, what is happening around us.

‘We knew against Arsenal what was not right but what the world out there makes of it, putting the finger on the obvious thing that a couple of world-class players were not there, we knew so we didn’t have to read it. We did our own thing.’

Brentford boss Thomas Frank bemoaned the manner in which his team fell behind on the stroke of half-time.

Fabinho scored a header at the back post from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner and Frank said: ‘That should never happen but unfortunately we did that. I would love to see what happened if it was 0-0 at half-time. Second half, we were brave and had a chance from Bryan Mbeumo but then they scored through Oxlade-Chamberlain and it was a done deal.’
