Jimenez has gone down the tunnel on a stretcher receiving oxygen, Luiz stood over him talking to the Wolves medical staff. He's back on the pitch, no doubt Arsenal's doctors will have given him the green light to return, but that decision will come under real scrutiny I'm sure.— Charles Watts (@charles_watts) November 29, 2020
