Raul Jimenez rushed to major trauma centre after needing oxygen following sickening clash of heads with David Luiz

RAUL JIMENEZ had to be rushed to a major trauma centre after his sickening clash of heads with David Luiz.

The Mexican striker needed lengthy treatment on the pitch after a collision in the early stages of Wolves' 2-1 win over Arsenal.

Jimenez received treatment from club doctors and paramedics, including receiving oxygen on the pitch.

He was then carried off on a stretcher before being rushed to hospital in an ambulance.

However, rather than go to the nearest A&E ward, he was taken to a major trauma centre.

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: "We were called at 7:27pm today (29 November) to reports of a person injured at Emirates Stadium on Queensland Road, Holloway.

"We sent an ambulance crew, an advanced paramedic, an incident response officer and a medic in car to the scene. We also dispatched London’s Air Ambulance by car.

"We treated a man at the scene and took him to a major trauma centre.”

Thankfully, it was later confirmed that Jimenez was conscious in hospital and responding to treatment.

After full-time, Wolves wrote on social media: "Raul's head injury is being assessed with a scan at a London hospital.

"We will continue to update with more information as soon as we have it."
