Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says an operation on his injured knee was a success and he is already working hard on his recovery. Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered ligament damage early in the first leg of Liverpool's Champions League semi-final win against Roma last month.

The England international was consequently ruled out of the World Cup, although he could return in time for the 2018-19 season. Oxlade-Chamberlain, though, is staying positive after an operation on his injured knee went well.
"Watching the boys in Rome last week taking us one step closer to something very special," he wrote on his Twitter account alongside a photograph of him in a hospital bed. "Knee surgery was a success and the hard work has already begun."
