At the end of the first half, Leandro Trossard of Arsenal was critically injured, despite having scored the game-winning goal against Burnley.
The Belgian had to have his arm removed by Arsenal’s medical staff after he struck the post with his headed goal in the 45th minute.
The former Brighton player had been receiving treatment, and at the conclusion of the match, he was lying on the turf inside the Arsenal box. On the other hand, Mikel Arteta’s team took the lead at the half thanks to his audacity.
Just before the halftime siren, Trossard entered the room while cautiously retaining his right arm.
The collision of people and woodwork also included Burnley goalkeeper James Trafford. Bukayo Saka nodded his head from the back post, and Trossard rose highest to direct it in.
Arsenal controlled the first forty-five minutes, creating multiple opportunities and moving the ball around their opponent’s half. Kai Havertz missed two excellent opportunities after having his shot inside the box blocked and missing from a corner.
Saka had earlier nearly broken the impasse by confusing Jordan Beyer, Trafford, and Charlie Taylor with a back-post header.
After going past Trafford and into an empty net, the 23-year-old center back almost went through his own net. However, Saka clawed the ball out on the line and subsequently called a foul during the build-up.
Eddie Nketiah was warming up on the bench while Trossard was playing center. The 28-year-old was permitted to play on after the half.
