Neal Maupay accused Arsenal of "lacking humility" and believed they got what they deserved in their defeat at Brighton, with the Seagulls striker insisting he was not to blame for a serious injury suffered by Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
Leno was furious with Maupay after he landed awkwardly on his right leg following a collision between the pair during the first half, and was seen shouting at the Frenchman as he was carried off the field on a stretcher.
""At half time I went to the manager Mikel Arteta to apologise. I never meant to injure the keeper. I jumped for the ball," Maupay told BT Sport. "I apologise to the team and to him as well. I have been through a bad injury, it is hard.
"Arsenal players maybe need to learn humility sometimes. They were talking a lot. They got what they deserved."
