Liverpool loanee Sheyi Ojo is facing a three-month spell on the sidelines after dislocating his shoulder.
The 20-year-old was injured while playing against Queens Park Rangers for Fulham at Loftus Road. He was stretchered off the field after landing awkwardly on his left shoulder, having come off a challenge involving QPR's Joel Lynch.
Ojo was immediately taken to the hospital, after which Cottagers manager Slavisa Jokanovic confirmed that the player had suffered a badly dislocated shoulder.
“We are not lucky this start of the season. We have one player more in the hospital," he said. “It’s a dislocation of the shoulder. That’s all we know," he said, viaSky Sports.
The winger is on a season-long loan at Fulham from the Reds, but the deal could be cut short as a result of this latest development.
Liverpool's medical staff, though, are said to be in touch with Fulham as they plot out the best course of action for the player's recovery.
