The Spanish defender was stretchered off after a wince-inducing collision with Blues goalkeeper Ederson at Etihad Stadium

Eric Garcia was forced off the pitch late on during Manchester City’s clash with Arsenal on Wednesday after being taken out by his own team-mate.

With City 2-0 up heading into the last ten minutes of their first game back following the coronavirus-enforced break in the season, Ederson came flying out of his goal to deal with a through ball.

The Brazilian shot-stopper collided violently with Garcia in the process, leaving the 19-year-old flattened on the ground and unable to continue.
