Alexandre Lacazette forced off injured after collision with Harry Maguire

Alexandre Lacazette was forced off with an injury after colliding with Harry Maguire in Arsenal’s goalless draw with Manchester United.

The Gunners striker leaped into the air to attack the ball as Maguire leaned forward in the dying embers of the match at the Emirates.

This resulted in France international Lacazette flying over the back of the Manchester United captain and landing on a heap on the ground.

Both players needed treatment on the pitch, but it wasn’t long before England star Maguire returned to his feet and carried on playing.

Lacazette, however, needed a little more attention and after a long delay was replaced by Gunners youngster Eddie Nketiah.

Fortunately Lacazette was able to walk off the pitch, and appeared to be taken off as a precaution, rather than because he was carrying a serious injury.

Manchester United were looking to bounce back with a win over Arsenal to close the gap on Man City at the top of the Premier League.

But the Red Devils couldn’t find a decisive moment against the Gunners.
