Switched the game on as the Medical staff were in the pitch, nasty head clash, apparently you could hear it on TV, no reolays of the incident, so must be bad.

Hope he's ok.

I was watching the game - the sound was sickening. Very worried for Jimenez
I turned away from the TV as i could not bear to watch the aftermath.

Can’t believe David Luiz played on with his head bandaged but seeping blood.

Fractured skull confirmed. Operation last night went well and he’s stable and recovering, which is amazing news. There’s a good chance he might not play again, however. It’s going to be a big ask, especially for a centre forward.

Luiz should never have been allowed to play on until half time after the medical staff saw the extent of the clash he was involved in - his head was pissing blood and given the state of the other person involved it was blindingly obvious that he needed a full assessment and to be withdrawn. Football is still refusing to take head injuries and welfare as seriously as it needs to.
