Arsenal goalkeeper suffered a horrific injury during Saturday’s Premier League game against Brighton.

The Germany international landed awkwardly on his right leg collecting an innocuous looking pass under a challenge from Neal Maupay.

As he collected the ball, Leno attempted to ensure he remained inside his penalty area but twisted and sustained what is almost certainly an injury that will keep him out for the rest of the season.

The 28-year-old, the only rival to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the club’s player of the season accolade, 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.
