Liverpool No2 Lijnders delivers Oxlade-Chamberlain update

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's ankle injury is not serious, says assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders.

The 28-year-old was forced off in the second half of Saturday's 3-0 Premier League victory over Brentford at Anfield, soon after scoring the Reds' second goal.

The problem rules him out of this week's return to his former club Arsenal, but the club are hopeful he could be back in action for this weekend's trip to Crystal Palace.

Lijnders told the club's website, “I spoke yesterday with him and he thinks it's not that bad. We have to assess it day by day.

"I would not rule out the weekend, but for sure not tomorrow."
