After landing awkwardly on his shoulder, Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho had to be substituted in the 55th minute of his team’s match against Swansea on Monday.

Coutinho got up and tried to play through it, but he ventured back onto the field gingerly holding his right shoulder and decided that he could not play through the apparent problem.

Iago Aspas entered the match, and Coutinho’s status is currently unknown as the match continues.
