Premier League: Newcastle United Striker Callum Wilson Left With Tooth Hanging Out During Win vs Arsenal. See Pics
Premier League: Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson suffered a tooth injury during his side's win vs Arsenal on Tuesday.
Callum Wilson was left with a tooth hanging out following a gruesome injury on his return to Newcastle United's starting XI on Tuesday, at St. James Park. The striker played a crucial role as Newcastle sealed a 2-0 win vs Arsenal. The win further dented Arsenal's hopes of sealing a UEFA Champions League berth. In the 27th minute, Wilson could be seen on live camera receiving treatment on the sidelines and his gums could be seen bleeding with a front tooth dislodged. Despite the injury, the Englishman returned back to the field immediately. The cause of the injury wasn't caught on camera and it was also Wilson's first start since suffering a calf injury which kept him in the sidelines since January.
Here are some of the photos of Wilson's tooth injury, which fans shared on social media:
