Bernd Leno suffers horror injury as BT Sport refuse to show replay before Arsenal ace rows with rival from stretcher


BERND LENO suffered a horror injury so bad BT Sport refused to show it – with the German angrily lashing out at Neal Maupay following their collision during Arsenal vs Brighton.

The Gunners goalkeeper, 28, appeared to pick up a nasty knock after a collision with Seagulls striker Neal Maupay.

Leno’s knee appeared to give way from underneath him after bending backwards – usually a sign of a horror ligament-related injury.

The Arsenal ace let out a scream in agony as he crumpled to the turf, as medics rushed to treat him – leading to a five-minute delay in action.

As he was taken off on a stretcher, Leno shouted and pointed furiously at French forward Maupay – to be replaced by Emiliano Martinez.

In what is quickly becoming a nightmare first week back for Mikel Arteta, Arsenal had already been thumped 3-0 by Manchester City on Wednesday night.

And during Saturday’s 3pm kick-off against Brighton, Leno left the pitch on a stretcher with an apparent knee injury.

In a feisty game, Bukayo Saka had already taken a blow to the face.

And with first-choice stopper Leno likely out for the season if his injury is in fact knee ligaments, the Gunners may have to all-but give up on their European dreams.

In fact, one Gooner on Twitter claimed his side are “genuinely cursed” after their season was absolutely wrecked by injuries.

Leno screamed out in pain as his knee crumpled underneath him

Arteta had been forced to play midfielders Saka and Ainsley Maitland-Niles in defence for much of the season due to their horrific injury crisis, with the likes of Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney out.

On Wednesday, Pablo Mari was ruled out for the season with a nasty ankle injury, picked up during the loss at the Etihad.

Now it seems they will be without Leno for the rest of the season – and possibly until 2021.
