- Callum Wilson suffered a gruesome injury on his return to Newcastle’s starting XI with the striker’s tooth being dislodged during their clash against Arsenal
- The 30-year-old received treatment on the sidelines in the 27th minute as cameras showed his gum bleeding while his front right tooth was hanging down
- To Wilson’s credit, he returned to action almost instantly with no doubt a lot of pain surging through his mouth
Newcastle United forward Callum Wilson was left with a gruesome injury during his side's clash against Arsenal on Monday evening.
The 30-year-old moved over to the sidelines to receive some medical attention after knocking one of his front teeth loose during the clash against the Gunners.
Wilson has had more than his fair share of injury problems during his career, suffering two cruciate ligament injuries and a number of other smaller problems.
He has also missed nearly four months of the 2021/22 season with a calf problem, but made his return to action shortly before the clash against Mikel Arteta's side.
He was then shown to be receiving attention to an injury to his mouth, with one of his front teeth being partially dislodged.
The tooth in question looked to be hanging by a thread, but the striker was back out and taking part not long after.
