Liverpool boss Klopp delivers Oxlade-Chamberlain injury update

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has suffered ankle ligament damage.

The England international limped off with an ankle injury in Liverpool's 1-0 Club World Cup final victory over Flamengo on Saturday.

"The ankle is what we probably expected," said Klopp.

"One of the ligaments on the outside is damaged and we have to see how quickly we can fix that. It can take a while or it can be quicker, we will see."

Liverpool are back in England following their Club World Cup final win in Doha, and will be in action against Leicester City on Boxing Day.

Klopp said: "Only real thing I can say is the way to Qatar was difficult sleeping-wise.

"Way back was normal, Day off yesterday, the boys slept as much as they could. We needed days to get used to [Qatar] but now we are back and it is all good."
