Liverpool's Borini facing lengthy spell out

Fabio Borini could be out for the rest of the season

Liverpool FC may lose Fabio Borini for the remainder of the season after the Italian forward suffered a suspected dislocated shoulder in the club's 5-0 Premier League success against Swansea City AFC.

The 21-year-old entered the fray with just 12 minutes remaining but fell awkwardly and was forced off before the final whistle. "It looks like Fabio Borini has a dislocated shoulder which will keep him out for the season," said manager Brendan Rodgers after the game. "It is unfortunate. It is actually the other shoulder to a similar injury he had when he was at Chelsea. It is a big blow for us."

Capped once by Italy, Borini was an unused substitute in Liverpool's 2-0 UEFA Europa League round of 32 first-leg loss at FC Zenit St Petersburg on Thursday, having made two appearances in the competition this season.
