Brighton forward criticizes Arsenal after late winner

SPORT– Brighton match-winner Neal Maupay said Arsenal got what they deserved after they criticized him for his role in a serious injury to keeper Bernd Leno.

Leno landed awkwardly after being nudged by Maupay and had to be carried off on a stretcher as Arsenal lost 2-1.

German Leno sat up as he was being carried off and pointed at Maupay, while Arsenal players surrounded the Brighton player at full-time.

“Some of their players need to learn what is humility,” said Maupay.

Arsenal’s French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi had to be pulled away from Maupay by his team-mates after the final whistle as Brighton came from behind to win.


Leno is the third injury Arsenal have suffered since they returned to action in the Premier League SAT 20 Jun 2020Premier League
