an injury. In the third minute of the second half, he was hit in the face with an elbow during a contest

scored in five consecutive home matches, including against Brighton (1-4 L), Liverpool (1-3 L), 카지노사이

in league scoring with Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) and Jarrod Bojan (West Ham) with five goals.

went down again in the 41st minute and was eventually substituted, but walked off himself, confirming that the injury was not serious.
