Arsenal star Sead Kolasinac smashes Brighton's Ezequiel Schelotto with brutal body blow but somehow avoids red card

The left-back, 24, smashed his shoulder into his opponent's face during the 2-1 loss at the Amex Stadium.

Fans were left gobsmacked as Schelotto writhed in pain on the ground as the ref charged towards the action.

But despite appearing to have no eyes on the ball and all his focus on the player, Kolasinac wasn't even booked for his foul.

Schelotto was left needing oxygen and was eventually forced off the field, looking worse for wear as he returned to the bench.

But Kolasinac's ability to avoid an early bath didn't help Arsenal on the day as they succumbed to yet another defeat.
