      He's been such an important player in this second half of the season, I'm really sad for him if he does miss the rest of the season (and the World Cup).

      Gutted for him. Had been improving exponentially for the past few games.
      Hope it's not as serious as it looks.  :-[

      Massive loss, has been outstanding in the second half of the season.  Hope it's not as bad as it looked.

      Hopefully he is sitting in the Hyper Barrick Chamber right now getting it sorted. Get well soon Ox.

      Feel for him with the games we have coming up and the world cup around the corner too.

      If Can doesn't find fitness then the midfield 3 of Wijnaldum, Hendo and Milner is about all we have left now.

      Absolutely gutted for Ox. Had a great 2nd half of the season and was lining up for an important WC.

      So I saw a picture of him leaving anfield last night, passenger seat in his girlfriends car, the fact that he wasn’t leaving in a ambulance or in the hospital has to be a positive sign??

      Not really.

      He wouldn't be having any scan last night because of the swelling

      He would be in today regardless

      It's a knee injury not a head injury or anything that would need immediate care. The swelling needs to reduce before the scan

      If you  do your ACL, you can theoretically walk around on it, I've seen this. But you also risk doing more damage to it by doing this. That's what I thought about when they sent the stretcher over to carry him around the park.

      The way he landed with his leg at an angle reminded me a little bit of when Sadio was injured last April. My hope there is that Sadio was back for preseason training.

      Somebody mentioned Ox might not be back before Christmas and if it is serious ligament damage, that unfortunately is also a real possibility.

      Is that the account that always tips the lineups correctly?

      It’s a bit up and down mate and takes a bit of hammer at times.......but all the “itk / insider” ones do tbh......

      Not sure why they’d take a flyer on this one without some chat......

      I don't expect it to be anything but bad. My thoughts move to how do we deal with this significant hole in the squad in the short term and longer term. Any ideas?

      He has really "come of age" under Jürgen lets hope he can come back stronger whenever this maybe.

      OK, I didn't realize they had missed lineups, definitely had the last couple of matches. Does any individual publicly identify with producing the content or is all clandestine?

      At any rate, I think we're all thinking in terms of "is it 3 months, 6 months or longer? :-(

      Short term I think the only answer is Gini, played ahead of Milner and Henderson in a midfield three (at least for our two remaining Champions League matches. The only other thing that comes to mind is playing Bobby as an attacking mid in a 4-4-2, but I doubt Jürgen would make that kind of tactical change this late in the season.

      Long term we obviously need improved depth at midfield and forward. Not sure if that is primarily though loan recalls and promoted youth, or transfers in (although we definitely need at least one new midfielder in next year along with Keita, especially if Can is leaving).

      I do hope Alex can get back to being a major part of our team. Seems like a top guy as well.

      Mirror says 4 months but its upto 9 months in Twitter talk! Absolutely gutted for the lad. Brought such energy and drive to our midfield in the last few games. Hope the rest 3 stay fit for another month.

      Best to wait until it’s official.
