Liverpool fans have expressed their disappointment for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on Twitter.
Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered a cruciate ligament injury in last month's Champions League win over Roma, and was swiftly ruled out of the rest of Liverpool's season, as well as England's World Cup campaign in Russia.
But it looks like the full extent of the damage has been uncovered and it is a grim prognosis for a player who had shown very promising signs of progression under Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.
And understandably, fans of the Merseyside club are devastated for the former Arsenal man, a £35 million signing last August. Here is how they reacted to the news:

He'll be like a new signing by Christmas— Oldhairy (@oldhairy1) May 14, 2018
Gutted for the fella
Oh god man— Jaisal Singh (@jaisal_97) May 14, 2018
He will be a miss against Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Ukraine on Saturday week, but Liverpool, who scored seven goals against Roma over two legs without him, still boast more than enough firepower to challenge Zinedine Zidane's side and bring home a sixth European Cup crown.
