LOAN WATCH: Liverpool flyer Ojo stretchered off in Fulham win

Liverpool loanee, Sheyi Ojo is out for the rest of the year after an injury in his side, Fulham's, 2-1 win over rivals Queen Park Rangers.

Ojo fell awkwardly after a tackle, in the 55th minute, from Rangers' defender, Joel Lynch. He was stretched off field afterwards, and taken to hospital.

Ojo, who was meant to be playing for the Young Lions in the upcoming Euro U21 qualifiers, will miss the next three months after dislocating his shoulder and causing damage to his collarbone.

Fulham coach, Slavisa Jokanovic said after the game, “Unfortunately, we have another player in hospital tonight. It is some kind of dislocation to his shoulder."

Fulham went ahead in the 41st minute thanks to an own goal from Jack Robinson. Stefan Johansen then gave the Cottagers a two-goal buffer in the 85th minute.

However, Conor Washington netted a goal for Queen Park Rangers late in the game, to give Fulham a nervous finish, especially with the 9 minutes added on, due to Ojo's injury.
