Still images of the incident showed Welbeck's right ankle caught underneath him in an awkward position as his body went to ground.

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown says Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang let the Gunners down during Thursday's goalless draw against Sporting CP in the Europa League.

"Danny remains in hospital and will continue to be assessed", the club said via their official website.

Following the match, which ended 0-0, Emery confirmed Welbeck had been taken to hospital for further treatment. "We wish him well, he is probably the nicest man I've met in football".


Ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash between Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sports Mole looks at how Unai Emery's side could line up in North London.

"Oh no. get well soon Danny", Ozil wrote.

Welbeck suffered the injury in the first half of the group stage fixture, with the score locked at 0-0.

"When one player has an injury like that, every player on the pitch they look at this injury". His injury also affected the mentality of the players as they could see it was a big injury.


"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.

"I think Danny was working well and was playing a good match". They [saw] it was a big injury.

After losing their opening two matches of the season, Arsenal have won 12 and drawn three of their 15 games in all competitions since, including a run of 11 straight victories between August and October. "You don't want it to happen but this is our profession".
