Chamberlain to miss half of Premier League matches due to injury

Liverpool forward Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will miss the vast majority of the 2018/19 season as he continues his recovery from knee surgery, Liverpool have announced.
Chamberlain sustained multiple ligament damage to his right knee when attempting a tackle during the first half of Liverpool's Champions League semi-final first-leg tie with Roma at Anfield in April. He underwent surgery eight days later and the estimated length of his lay-off was not revealed at the time due to the request of the 24-year-old. 

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said in a statement on the club's website "It feels like now is an appropriate time to tell people that for Ox this coming season will be about focusing on recovery and rehab. We have known this from pretty much the day after he got the injury and after the successful surgery, we were sure of it. I hope everyone treats this information responsibly. There has been no change, no setback - it's exactly on the schedule we expected and planned for. The new information is that we're now giving more detail publicly. His surgery has been completely successful and his recovery has started superbly well but the truth of the matter is that we are preparing this season knowing he will not be with us on the pitch for competitive matches for the majority of it. If we do see him back this season it will be a bonus."
