Video: Arsenal’s Bernd Leno stretchered off injured after horror collision with Neal Maupay

Posted by

In the 35th minute of Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Brighton this afternoon, goalkeeper Bernd Leno landed badly after a nasty collision with Seagulls forward Neal Maupay.

Graham Potter’s side played a long ball up the pitch, Leno came out to claim the ball, but Maupay continued to challenge the stopper, Leno landed awkwardly and was seen clutching his knee.

It’s a shame to see something like this happen on the pitch, both men of course had a fair claim to the ball, Maupay’s intentions didn’t seem malicious at all but they ultimately led to the injury.

Leno was replaced by Arsenal academy graduate Emiliano Martinez.

Take a look at the collision below:

Leno has proven to be a solid player for the Gunners since joining a couple of years ago, hopefully the blow to the Germany international isn’t too serious.

Thankfully the ace was conscious after the collision.
