But fans witnessed a scary scene in the 77th minute, as they worried for Traore’s health.

After evading a challenge from Nacho Fernandez, the 26-year-old appeared uncomfortable.

As the ball went out for a throw in he turned around, before clutching his chest and falling to the ground.

The incident thankfully occurred right by the touchline, meaning club medics were able to attend to him quickly.

Traore remained breathing throughout the ordeal.

Doctors used smelling salts in order to try and activate the player’s senses.

Traore was able to answer questions, before being helped into a sitting position and off the field of play.

No reason has yet been given as to why Traore was taken ill.

The winger is the latest star to collapse on the field of play in 2021.

Christian Eriksen suffered a harrowing cardiac arrest while playing for Denmark at Euro 2020.

And just this week Sheffield United star John Fleck was rushed to hospital after collapsing against Reading.

Thankfully the Scot is okay and was discharged the following morning, with further tests to come.
