Rui Patricio stretchered off suffering head injury in collision with Conor Coady

Nuno Espirito Santo said after the game that he is conscious and feeling ok

Wolves suffered a 1-0 loss to Liverpool on Monday night, with Diogo Jota scoring the only goal of the game against his old club. But Nuno Espirito Santo and the rest of the Wolves family will be less concerned by the result and more concerned by the sight of their first choice goalkeeper being stretchered off.

Rui Patricio was knocked out cold on the ground after a collision with his captain Conor Coady, who was tracking back to defend against Mo Salah. The Liverpool forward scored from the shot but had his goal ruled out for offside. But the flag went up far too late for Patricio, who took a knee to the face from his captain, both unaware of the impending collision.

The incident occurred int he 85th minute and saw five minutes added onto the stoppage time that had been racked up already, with the game finishing in its 114th minute.

Medis attended to Patricio, applying an oxygen mask before eventually moving him onto a stretcher and carrying him off the field of play.

The Portuguese was replaced by John Ruddy for the remaining minutes of the game.

It is another stroke of bad luck for Wolves, who lost their main striker Raul Jimenez earlier this season to a head injury, after the Mexican striker collided with David Luiz in the air.
