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.
