Arsenal's Danny Welbeck suffers leg injury against Sporting

Arsenal's Danny Welbeck suffers leg injury against Sporting

"The news is that we are going to wait - but we think it's a serious injury".

"It's a very big injury for him, for us, for all people who like and love him as a person".

Steven Gerrard´s Rangers saw their 11-game unbeaten run in this year´s Europa League come to a dramatic end as they threw away the lead three times in a 4-3 defeat at Spartak Moscow.

"Danny was working well". His injury was hard also for the mentality of the players because they looked at the big injury, but when you are playing football in competitive matches it can happen.

Unai Emery said a point against Sporting Lisbon was not enough for Arsenal in their quest to win their Europa League group. You don't want it to happen but this is our profession.


The 27-year-old has been troubled with knee problems in the past but has managed five goals in 16 appearances for the Gunners this term.

Welbeck, who appeared to be in real pain, was consoled by former Manchester United teammate Nani and was given an effusive reception as he was taken off the field of play.

Numerous fans had differing reactions to how the game went on social media, with some just pleased that they have qualified for the latter stages, whilst others were disappointed with the performances from some of their players.

He was carried off the pitch following an awkward landing after he had beaten Sporting defender Bruno Gaspar to a header and it was clear he was in need of help.

But Arsenal could not take advantage as Aubameyang blasted the resulting free-kick well over the crossbar.
