Sore: Meyler receives treatment after getting a boot in the head

Hull and Ireland player David Meyler suffered a fairly ghastly eye injury during his team's clash against Arsenal last night.

Hull trooped off at half-time three goals down and thoroughly dejected, having only an ambitious 40-yard effort from Dame N'Doye and a Sone Aluko header - which he tried to play back across goal - to show in their favour.

Bruce's response was to send on Irish midfielder David Meyler for the ineffective Jake Livermore and the Tigers were immediately a tougher proposition.

It was Meyler who played a significant part as Hull pulled one back in the 56th minute.

He clattered into Francis Coquelin and while Arsenal protested Ahmed Elmohamady played in a super cross that Quinn met with a stooping header than bounced past Ospina.

However, the Irish international received a fairly hefty boot to the face and head and required medical attention to stem the flow of blood. He was left with a nasty gash over his right eye and received lengthy treatment.

He posted this image in Instagram today showing how the eye looked after he had been stitched up. 
 

Much better today 👀
