Brighton’s Leandro Trossard suffers sickening arm injury leaving him screaming in agony

-

Brighton and Hove Albion’s Leandro Trossard suffered a sickening arm injury against Southampton which left the Belgian screaming in agony.

Trossard was treated by the club’s medical staff for seven minutes before being stretchered off the field at St. Mary’s.

Brighton had used all three of their substitutes when Trossard was forced off, meaning Graham Potter’s side were reduced to 10 men for the remainder of the match in similar fashion to midweek.

Adam Lallana’s injury against West Ham United on Wednesday had also forced the Seagulls to go a man down before they rescued a point through Neal Maupay.

Having been fouled in the back while jumping for the ball inside his own half, Trossard landed awkwardly on his arm and was seen screaming in agony.

The lengthy stoppage in the match caused referee Anthony Taylor to play 11 minutes of additional time following the 90 minutes.

In the eighth minute of time added on, Maupay latched onto a deflected Jakub Moder shot to fire the ball past Alex McCarthy and level the score at 1-1.

Should Graham Potter be the next England manager? Let us know in the comments section below.

Southampton had taken the lead during the first half through Chelsea loanee Armando Broja’s fifth goal of the season and the hosts had looked on course for all three points.

Earlier in the week, Maupay had bagged a late equaliser away to West Ham with an acrobatic overhead kick to rescue a point.

It is still unclear how long Trossard will be sidelined for, but many Brighton supporters fear he could face a lengthy lay-off due to the need for a stretcher.

He joins the club’s ever-growing injury list, which already includes captain Lewis Dunk, Adam Webster, Steven Alzate and Danny Welbeck.

Saturday’s result marked 10 league matches without a win for Potter’s side, a run which stretches back to their home victory over Leicester City in September.

Despite this, though, they have only lost twice during this period and remain just three points adrift of fifth placed Arsenal.
