Joao Texieira being stretchered off with the injury

On-loan Brighton midfielder Joao Teixeira will be out for the rest of the season with a broken leg. The 22-year-old, who is on loan from Liverpool, sustained the injury in the 0-0 draw with Huddersfield on Tuesday. “Our thoughts are with Joao, as this is a real blow to him after such a good season for the club,” Seagulls boss Chris Hughton told the club website. The Portugal Under-21 international joined Brighton in August and scored six goals in 35 appearances during his time at the Amex Stadium.
