Fabinho was withdrawn after 75 minutes during Liverpool & # 39; s 2-0 win over Cardiff, just five minutes after he arrived as a substitute.

A clash of heads between Fabinho and Bluebird's striker Kenneth Zohore led to the 25-year-old treatment on the field.

The former Monaco midfielder finally sat up before the club physicians checked whether the collision had caused him a concession.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp was visibly frustrated in the technical field and walked along the sidelines because medical staff indicated that Fabinho could not continue.

The severity of his injury is currently unclear.

His replacement, James Milner, without a doubt set the result with nine minutes to go when he sent Cardiff keeper Neil Etheridge off the penalty spot in the wrong way.
