Jan Bednarek had to be subbed off after a sickening fall in the Premier League clash between Arsenal and Southampton on Friday evening.
Bednarek won a header but fell awkwardly after contract from Gabriel Martinelli.
The Polish defender was in serious pain and it appeared as if he was knocked out.
Medical staff rushed on the pitch to attend to Bednarek and a stretcher was bought on.
Incredibly, he was able to get to his feet and was adamant he could play on.
But medical staff ruled that he was not fit to continue and he was replaced by Duje Ćaleta-Car. Watch the moment below…
