Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno suffered what looked like a serious knee injury at the Amex Stadium as he tried to catch the ball inside his net. BT Sport has decided not to see replays of the incident that left Leno in apparent distress.
After picking up two injuries during their first game back in the action at Premier League on Wednesday night, Arsenal has another major injury problem.
The Gunners take on Brighton on the south coast at Amex Stadium and they have to worry about yet another injury crisis.
Neal Maupay, who went up and forced Bernd Leno into his box on the left edge of the floor, pursued Brighton’s hopeful ball.
The German goalkeeper carried the ball outside the area, but clearly, it was a foul and Martin Atkinson blew for a free-kick.
Yet Leno was in deep pain and his agonizing cries in a silent arena were audible. The stretcher came on and the keeper was carried off on it but before he left he was not in such pain that he could not make his feelings clear to the guilty Maupay.
Leno sat on the stretcher pointing at the Brighton striker with an accusing finger having a few words with the Frenchman before he left the match.
