Liverpool forward Taiwo Awoniyi is recovering well after suffering a head injury during loan club FSV Mainz 05's Bundesliga clash with Augsburg.

The 22-year-old had to be stretchered off midway through the first half of Sunday’s match due to an accidental collision and subsequent heavy fall.

Awoniyi was taken to hospital and underwent a scan, which revealed no break, and he remained there overnight for further monitoring.

The medical teams at both Liverpool and Mainz have been in contact regarding Awoniyi’s injury and will continue to assess him before any return to action.
