Arsenal’s Bernd Leno was stretchered off during the match against Brighton Hove Albion and was yelling at Neal Maupay as he left the field.

There was yet more injury trouble for Arsenal in their second game back from the lockdown.

In their first game back they lost Pablo Mari to ankle ligament damage. This time it looks like shot-stopper Bernd Leno has a knee injury.

Catastrophe struck yet again in the first half, as Leno came to the edge his box to claim what seemed like a simple ball.

Maupay made a somewhat late effort to rise in the air with the keeper. The forward never got near the ball and lightly body checked Leno.

The German keeper went to ground and ultimately left the field on a stretcher.

While he was obviously in pain, with his match and maybe season possibly over he still had time for some choice words for Maupay.

It’s not looking good for the Arsenal number one as the club has already posted get well soon messages to the player.
