Potts rushed to hospital

West Ham United defender Danny Potts has been taken straight to hospital after taking a blow during tonight's Premier League clash with Arsenal.

The 19-year-old left back had been on the field for just seven minutes, having replaced West Ham's goalscorer Jack Collison before taking what appeared to be an elbow to the face by an Arsenal player.

Although there was nothing to suggest that it was anything other than accidental, Potts was left crumpled in a heap and remained on the ground for a further nine minutes as concerned medical staff attended to him.

Thereafter, the son of former Hammer Steve Potts was taken straight from the field into a waiting ambulance - a period during which he remained unconscious the entire time.

Although Potts is reported to have gained consciousness, he is still being taken to hospital for tests and treatment. We'll bring you more news as it is announced.

West Ham, down to ten men having used all their substitutes are currently losing 5-1.

''Just left the game, it seemed an innocent challange at first, really concerned for the lad. Also I was a little ashamed of the two fans turfed out during the pause in play. Not too sure about the "Carlton give us a wave chant either", even he raised his hand in disbelief after the obligatory wave.

At least some chanted "there's only one Danny Potts". I hope the lad recovers quickly and with no long term affect.''
