There were distressing scenes as Hugo Lloris was given oxygen and stretchered off the pitch following arm injury he suffered today.
The painful moments came just 149 second into Tottenham’s away game against Brighton, his right arm buckled under his weight as he tumbled to the ground.
The France goalkeeper spilled the ball on his own line dealing with a high cross sent in by Pascal Gross gifting Brighton the lead through Neal Maupay in the third minute at the Amex Stadium.
The Seagulls players ran off in celebration, leaving goalkeeper was left is agony at the back of the net.

His team-mates quickly checked to see how he was, before calling their side’s medic team onto the pitch with Lloris unable to move.
He was given laughing gas so it would dull the pain, before he was then stretchered and play was halted for around six minutes.
Half an hour later, 19 year old striker Aaron Connolly doubled Brighton’s lead on his full Premier League debut. Paulo Gazzaniga did well to keep out his first effort, a clever flick to a cross from the left, but can do nothing about the rebound.
"We want seven," sing the Brighton fans 😳
