He looks a long way off returning.

He looks on schedule. But yes, that's still a long way off. A couple of months yet.

Indeed. Plus it usually takes 3-4 games to get back up to speed.

How’s the knee injury he had compared to chamberlain for example? Do we expect him to lose his explosiveness and pace or is his injury nowhere as bad as chamberlain?

Considering Chamberlain was out for almost 12 months and Diaz up to three months, I think that gives you an indication. Im no Welshred, but what Ox had (and Gomez and Van Dijk) was pretty much as bad as it gets.

Also Mane had a knee operation in his first season as well.

He did, but that injury against Roma was by far the worst and pretty much stifled him.

Ox's was about as bad as it gets, torn anterior cruciate ligament, ruptured lateral collateral ligament, medial ligament was damaged and lateral hamstring tendon torn clean off the bone.

Ok, what we can see here is that this injury was to his left knee…the same as his first injury..

So, this seems like a reinjury rather than a new one…..  which I would argue is marginally better for his body but nit so great for the reputation of our rehab team

The rumour was (unconfirmed I think) that it was a different ligament (MCL then LCL IIRC - acronym overload) not a different leg. It'd be tough to say they weren't related injuries though, it's very common to get compensatory injuries during rehabilitation.

It's a group of muscles and ligaments doing their part for the same job. Injure one of them and the others become more vulnerable.

I'd read that too, first was the MCL, then he injured the LCL in training. It's hard to say though as the club haven't specifically said which ligament(s) were involved. About the only things we can be pretty sure on is that the first injury wasn't a full tear (grade 2 I think that is) due to the 6-8 weeks recovery period and a full tear is the second injury due to the 12 weeks.

Re-injury is also possible though, that's par for the course when getting back to fitness with ligament injuries.

It's the inside view of Iron Man's helmet after he shattered Diaz's knee. Explains the set-back.

No wonder Iron Man died in Endgame he had Diaz blocking his heads up display.
