Tino Livramento given oxygen and stretchered off in Brighton draw
Stay strong, Tino Livramento
Southampton defender Tino Livramento suffered what appeared to be a serious injury during the Premier League clash against Brighton & Hove Albion.
The 19-year-old, who has made 32 appearances in all competitions this season, has impressed for the Saints since signing from Chelsea in the summer.
However, he appeared to suffer a nasty injury on Sunday as Ralph Hasenhüttl's men came from two goals down to draw 2-2 against Brighton at the Amex Stadium.

As reported by talkSPORT, the defender went down without anyone around him in with what looked like a knee problem. Livramento required oxygen before being taken from off the pitch on a stretcher.
Brighton make fast start
The home side took the lead inside 76 seconds, with Danny Welbeck poking home after Saints goalkeeper Fraser Forster failed to deal with Marc Cucurella's low cross.
Livramento was taken off in the 36th minute before the Seagulls made it 2-0 thanks to Mohammed Salisu's own goal.
Southampton pulled a goal back before half-time courtesy of James Ward-Prowse's stunning free-kick. The England international then grabbed his second of the game in the 54th minute to level proceedings.
Gutting for Livramento
A potentially serious knee injury could hamper any chance of Livramento - who has played for the Three Lions all the way up to Under-21 level - forcing his way into Gareth Southgate's England squad for the 2022 World Cup later this year.
The draw at the Amex sees Brighton move up to 11th position in the Premier League table, with Southampton moving above Crystal Palace into 13th, with Patrick Vieira's side hosting Leeds United on Monday night.
