Welbeck hospitalised after 'serious' ankle injury, Emery confirms

Unai Emery Arsenal 2018-19

A heavily changed Arsenal side were unable to break down a dogged Sporting team, who were reduced to 10 men in the 88th minute when defender Jeremy Mathieu fouled striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as he raced towards the area.

"We are going to wait for news on this injury, but we think it is serious".

The 27-year-old attempted to get on the end of a cross from the right, but fell awkwardly on his ankle. First it's in your mind - you think for the player.

The home side started positively enough with Matteo Guendouzi getting in behind the visitors backline to send a low ball in, but Welbeck's flick was hacked off the line.

The game was then stopped for several minutes after Welbeck contested a header with Gaspar before appearing to suffer an ankle injury on landing.

Leroy Sané trolls Manchester United after being linked with Old Trafford move
Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League after a thorough demolishing of Southampton at the Etihad on Sunday. In the other Sunday game, Chelsea thumped Crystal Palace 3-1 in the London Derby at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea.

The forward landed badly after challenging for a header and needed to be stretched off the pitch after some lengthy treatment, which included him requiring oxygen.

"We knew it was going to be tough considering we played them away and it wasn't easy, so we expected a hard game again", Iwobi told Arsenal website after the game. Pepe has scored eight goals and laid on seven assists in 12 Ligue 1 games so far, while he is a player who has been capped nine times by Ivory Coast, scoring three goals.

Iwobi was also quick to praise Sporting Lisbon for their efforts in the game.

Arsenal despite the draw have already booked a place in the knockout stages of the competition but one big dent to that achievement is the injury sustained by Danny Welbeck.
