Arsenal suffered yet another injury blow in just their second game of the restart after goalkeeper Bernd Leno was stretchered off with what looked like a horrifying knee injury in the first half.

The German shot stopper went up to challenge for the ball with Neal Maupay in the 40th minute before being bundled over by the Seagulls striker and landing awkwardly..



Leno looked to be in agony as he received treatment on the floor before being taken off on a stretcher and replaced by Emiliano Martinez.

In their season re-opener against Manchester City on Wednesday night the Gunners lost midfielder Granit Xhaka – who also had to be taken off on a stretcher following a mix up with team-mate Matteo Guendouzi.

Mikel Arteta’s men lost that game 3-0 and had been hoping to get back to winning ways at the Amex before losing Leno in a blow to their campaign.
