Arsenal’s goalkeeper, Bernd Leno suffers a serious injury during their game against Brighton on Saturday.
Arsenal who are playing their second game after their heavy defeat in the hands of Manchester City, were back in action on Saturday. They were hoping to bounce back after that game, but unfortunately, their German goalkeeper Bernd Leno during the game, landed awkwardly on his right leg after coming under a challenge from Neal Maupay.
Bernd Leno attempted to ensure he remained inside his penalty area after collecting a pass, but he twisted and sustained an injury that will keep him out for the rest of the season.
Bernd Leno was heard screaming in agony before the physios were able to attend to him and provide oxygen.
As he left the field of play on a stretcher eight minutes before half-time he was seen sitting up and directing a volley of abuse in the direction of Maupey who was protesting his innocence.
Leno was replaced by Emiliano Martinez, Arsenal’s longest-serving player, and the Argentine.
Arsenal are yet to release statement on the injury, as Bernd joins the list of injured players at the Emirate club. The likes of Granit Xhaka, Sokratis Papastathopouls, Calum Chambers and Cedric Soares are yet to be declared fit to return as Arsenal hope of qualifying to Europe is slowing fading off.
