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

Oxlade was replaced by Gini Wijnaldum in the match as the Reds strolled to a huge victory at Anfield.

The midfielder looked in agony and speaking after the game, which Liverpool won 5-2, Klopp admitted that the prognosis was not good.

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.

"I am a very positive person and hope it only feels bad, but all the medical department are quite concerned without a scan".

Klopp's men looked certain for the final in Kiev on May 26 when doubles from the outstanding Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino either side of Sadio Mane's strike saw the hosts race into a 5-0 lead. "It can not be a little bit less, because we really need the crowd".

It would be a terrible blow for the ex-Southampton man, who was surely set for a place in Gareth Southgate's squad, if maybe not England's first 11 in Russian Federation. "The biggest blow for the mood is the injury of Chamberlain because we lost a fantastic player", he said.
