It is thought that the player in question is Spanish midfielder Pedro Chirivella, who came off the bench in the 63rd minute of the game on Wednesday.

It was his return to the premiership side that has caused complications as the league believes there has been administrative issues that led to him being unable to play.
In a statement by a Liverpool spokesman, “The club are aware of a potential administrative issue pertaining to one of our players,”

Although the investigation is in the very early stages, expulsion from the competition could be a possibility if a suitable solution is not found.
