In a stunning display, Arsenal stars huddled in a circle as their team-mate received treatment.

The incident occurred in stoppage time at the end of the second half and play was initially allowed to continue before fans alerted the referee to what was happening.

Arsenal's Katie McCabe was quick on her feet to attend to Maanum - before she and Stina Blackstenius beckoned paramedics over.

Maanum was given oxygen as part of the incident and then taken off with the game resumed at 0-0.

Arsenal won the final in extra-time 1-0.

The club have since confirmed that Maanum is stable and speaking.
