Arsenal's Danny Welbeck suffers leg injury against Sporting

Arsenal's Danny Welbeck suffers leg injury against Sporting”

The Arsenal forward was challenging Sporting full-back Bruno Gaspar for a header when their legs tangled and Welbeck landed awkwardly on his ankle.

Welbeck's Arsenal teammates looked visibly distressed as they watched the forward getting treated and took turns shaking his hand as he was carried off the pitch.

Yet a 15th game unbeaten for Unai Emery's side at least assured them of European football after the turn of the year with two group matches left to seal top spot.

There was no immediate comment from the club on the seriousness of the injury to Welbeck, whose contract with the north London side ends at the end of the 2018-19 season.

"He has been taken to hospital". We are going to wait [for updates].

"Danny was working well".

"Danny is a very good person, his commitment with us is very big. The game in Lisbon was also hard but we won and now we can say those three points were very important".

Giroud ended his 11-game goal drought this season by giving Chelsea a 53rd-minute lead, and the Premier League giants held on despite BATE striking the woodwork three times in the match.

He wasn't the only Gunner injured, though, as Stephan Lichsteiner was also forced off with an apaprent muscle injury.

"Lichtsteiner is muscular", he added. In our game plan we know we had to be rigorous and they were nearly flawless on that.

Next up for Arsenal is a match with Wolves this weekend before players head off for the worldwide break.
