Oxlade-Chamberlain to miss start of season with new knee injury
Premier League injuries: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to miss the remainder of preseason and perhaps also the start of Liverpool’s 2020-21 Premier League season after suffering yet another knee injury in training this week.
“It was a challenge [in training].
“It looks like it is very similar to what Hendo had, which keeps him out for we don’t know for sure exactly how long, but for sure this preseason he will not make a game, Arsenal for sure not and then we will see. The next game is probably two weeks later, but I don’t know.
“We have to wait but it is far away from being perfect, of course. It is really hard for him and hard for us, but it is not to change.”
Liverpool, as PL champions, open their 2020-21 campaign with the Community Shield against FA Cup winners Arsenal on Aug. 29. The Red’s PL opener is currently set for Sept. 12, against Leeds United at Anfield.
