Arsenal player David Luiz was injured while playing in the premier league match against Leicester City on October 25, 2020. During the match, David Luiz suddenly sat down on the pitch signaling that he could not continue.

The ball was still in play and Arsenal goalie Bernd Leno threw the ball out of the pitch to allow the medics to attend to defender David Luiz.

Sadly, David Luiz could not continue and he was taken off and replaced by Shkodran Mustafi. A post-match report confirmed that Luiz will be out for a while due to a muscular injury.
