Arsenal right back suffered injury after shove from Stoke’s Arnautovic.
Arsenal defender Mathieu Debuchy suffered a suspected dislocated shoulder injury after being shoved by Stoke City’s Marko Arnautovic which caused the right back to land heavily and hit the advertising hoardings.
Debuchy only recently returned from ankle ligament damage that kept him out for three months and this latest injury could see him on the sidelines for an extended period once again.

The latest reports state the right back is being assessed in the Arsenal dressing room and will be having an X-ray to discover the extent of the damage.
However, it doesn’t look good for the Frenchman, here’s how Arsenal fans reacted to the injury on Twitter:
Told Debuchy has a dislocated shoulder, plus a huge cut under his right eye.

Debuchy injury/refereeing aside, you have to be thrilled with this. One of the best halves of football Arsenal have played all season.

Can’t wait to see Debuchy’s name added to one of the stupid “#AFC terrible injury record” list. As if the club has somehow messed up there.

Dislocated shoulder. Debuchy’s a great player, superb signing by Wenger in the summer so we’ve just got weaker defensively with his injury.

Really hope Debuchy’s doing the 1-0 gesture from his stretcher.

Debuchy really has no luck. And as much as I think he’s rather average, he is better than our other options.

That should be a ban for doing that to Debuchy.
