LONDON, Nov 30: Wolverhampton beat Arsenal in an away match for the first time in more than four decades, winning 2-1 in the Premier League in a game overshadowed by a serious head injury to Wolves forward Raul Jimenez.
The 29-year-old Jimenez was taken away on a stretcher in the fifth minute and then to a hospital, after a collision with Arsenal defender David Luiz while both challenged for a corner from Willian.
Jimenez, a Mexico international, is conscious and talking, Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo said. He will undergo a scan.
�He speaks, he�s aware. He�s doing a scan,� the manager said, adding that the team was still worried about Jimenez�s situation.
�Now we (will) have a proper assessment. But he�s in good hands.�
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said Luiz never lost consciousness and went through all the necessary medical tests when a head injury occurs.
Arteta said Luiz was substituted before the start of the second half because the defender had a nasty cut and wasn�t comfortable heading the ball. � AP
