I’m in work and can’t watch. What happened to Godfrey?

Under minimal pressure he's played the ball back, too strongly and it's crossed the dead ball line by a couple of feet. Pickford sweeps it back into play, but the assistant ref. hasn't signalled the corner and Havertz collects.

Godfrey sprints in to cover, lunges in and collects man and ball. Seems like his foot got caught in the turf, because he instantly knew he was in trouble. They didn't show replays, but it sounds like it was his ankle and he either dislocated it or broke it (or possibly both).

Player got about seven minutes of treatment and was carried straight out of the ground to a waiting ambulance.
