Arsenal player takes painkillers during Brighton match to play through injury

An Arsenal player was seen taking painkillers during a break in their match against Brighton. The player, goalkeeper David Raya, had sustained a knock in a collision with Tariq Lamptey, leaving both players injured. Just before Bukayo Saka scored from a spot-kick, Brighton’s appeal for a penalty was dismissed, leaving Lamptey on the ground. Despite being determined to continue, Lamptey suffered an ankle issue as a result of the collision.

Raya, also injured in the incident, received painkillers from the medical team during a drinks break to alleviate his discomfort. Despite his injury, Raya persevered through the match. This display of determination contributed to Arsenal’s defensive strength, as Raya played a crucial role in their match against Brighton, helping the team secure a win and achieve a notable clean sheet record. Additionally, defender Ben White has been actively participating in most of Arsenal’s league matches despite managing an issue since November.

Raya’s resilience during the Brighton match may have been inspired by White’s example and may have contributed to Arsenal’s performance as they strive for the Premier League title.
