Sevilla may have started their Primera Liga campaign with a convincing win - but the health of stricken wing-back Antonio Puerta is the only thing the Andalusian club are concerned about at present.

Puerta was taken to hospital after collapsing midway through the first half of Saturday night´s match against Getafe at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

The Spain international was able to walk from the pitch after being attended to by medical staff, who prevented him swallowing his tongue, but then collapsed again in the changing rooms and was given cardiac resuscitation before being taken to hospital.
