Arsenal’s injury woes continue to deepen after goalkeeper Bernd Leno was stretched off during the Premier League clash with Brighton on Saturday.

The 28-year-old was clearly in some pain as he received treatment on the pitch before aiming some choice words in Maupay’s direction as he was taken off the pitch with the game still goalless.

Leno was replaced by second-choice ‘keeper Emiliano Martinez, who was making his first Premier League appearance since April 2017.
