Danny Welbeck injury: Has Welbeck played his last game for Arsenal?

Danny Welbeck

We'll have to wait for updates from Unai Emery after the game but let's pray it's not as serious as it seemed on TV.

Arsenal also saw defender Stephan Lichtsteiner depart with an injury with 16 minutes remaining, and Emery hopes that is not as serious as Welbeck's problem.

England striker Welbeck was taken to hospital after sustaining a suspected broken ankle in the first half when he challenged for a header in the box before crumpling onto the pitch.

"This injury is very big for him, for us and for everyone". "He had some chances too". "We are thinking how he can help us in the future".

'His injury was hard for the mentality of the players because they looked at the injury. But when you are playing football in competitive matches it can happen'.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came closest to a goal all night when his shot cannoned back off of the post a minute after the break, and from there on it was a backs-against-the-wall performance from the Portuguese side.


The incident knocked the wind out of Arsenal's sails but Welbeck's replacement Aubameyang hit the crossbar as the visitors offered very little in terms of an attacking threat.

Another Arsenal win would take them to 12 points to mean Lisbon would not overtake them - even if the Emery's side lost their last two group games thanks to their better head-to-head record. "But we want tomorrow to give a big match with our personality".

Caretaker Sporting boss Tiago Fernandes said: "The players did exactly what I asked them to do".

"We do not even know what I'll be doing tomorrow".

"We were aware of the opponent's quality but we, knowing our capacity and being creative and aggressive with and without ball, could try to surprise here".
