Questions raised over Arsenal’s David Luiz being allowed to play on following horrible clash of heads with Jimenez

Arsenal vs Wolves

Sunday’s final Premier League fixture pitted Arsenal against Wolves.

The Gunners headed into the match in desperate need of a bounce-back result, after a nightmare run of results in the Premier League which had seen them score just one goal across the club’s last 5 outings.

Wolves, on the other hand, were in decent form, and continuing their early push for a European place.

As things stand in north London, meanwhile, it is indeed Nuno Santo’s side who hold the advantage at the Emirates.

Pedro Neto fired the visitors into the lead 27 minutes in, before Gabriel levelled things up for Mikel Arteta and co. just moments later.

Just before the break, though, Daniel Podence netted a superb goal to put Wolves in front once more:

Luiz plays on

The scoreline, however, is in fact far from the major talking point to have stemmed from the action at the Emirates thus far.

The majority of the chatter across social media has instead surrounded the upsetting clash between Raul Jimenez and David Luiz early in the first 45.

Luiz, thankfully, managed to return to his feet, before being bandaged up.

Jimenez, on the other hand, was stretchered off, and promptly taken to hospital:

What has since sparked even further attention, however, is the fact that David Luiz was somehow permitted to play on.

As things stand, the Premier League does not have a concussion substitute rule in place, though it was trialed in the FA Cup earlier this year.

One would have to assume, though, that had such a rule been in place this evening, Luiz would have been afforded a much more detailed checkup.

Worryingly, after returning to the pitch, it quickly became apparent that Luiz was still bleeding from his head:

And the situation, as showcased below, has since resulted in considerable concern online:
