One of Liverpool’s Brazilian wizards was stretchered off the Anfield pitch on Saturday after a tackle from Sunderland’s Didier Ndong.

Philippe Coutinho spent several minutes on the turf, and had to be stretchered off following a spell with trainers.

He had a brace strapped to his right ankle, and had his head in hands.
