ERIC GARCIA'S horror collision with team-mate Ederson during the 3-0 win against Arsenal left Manchester City stars nervously watching on before the defender left the pitch on a stretcher.

The likes of Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero all looked on in horror after the 19-year-old laid motionless on the ground after a sickening clash with the Brazilian goalkeeper.

The incident occurred during the latter stages of the victory against the Gunners at the Etihad, which resulted in Garcia requiring oxygen before going to hospital.

Thankfully, the Spanish centre-back has since been released from hospital and he is now resting at home before potentially returning to training next week.

Garcia's team-mate Aymeric Laporte took to Twitter to comment on his condition as he allayed fears that the talented teenager is seriously injured.

He said: "U guys been asking me a lot about Eric : he's OK fam. He just needs a couple days to rest but he will be fine soon enough."

Speaking immediately after the clash against Arsenal, Pep Guardiola said: "We are concerned about Eric.

"The doctor told me he was conscious and we’re going to do everything to be sure that everything is fine and well."

Meanwhile Raheem Sterling added: "Eric had a fantastic game, came in fit and played really well.

"[It was] was sad to see him go off like that, at first he looked pretty bad but after a little bit he looked himself. Only time will tell."

The duo weren't the only people worried about Garcia's well-being, with fans taking to social media to wish the ex-Barcelona youth star a speedy recovery.

One supporter posted: "Such an unfortunate injury to Eric Garcia. Great talent with a very bright future. Really hoping he gets well soon."
