Arsenal reach last 32 as Danny Welbeck suffers serious-looking injury

Unai Emery

Arsenal have won 12 and drew two of their past 14 matches in all competitions

"We worked well with very good commitment in a hard game".

He deservedly received a call up to Gareth Southgate's England squad this afternoon but after what looks like a serious injury against Sporting CP tonight, it looks like he will be out for a long spell. "The game in Lisbon was also hard but we won and now we can say those three points were very important". "We are thinking how he can help us in the future".

"When you are playing football, when you are playing in competitive matches, it can happen". But when the match finishes, the first thing they did was ask for him. Danny was working well and... "You don't want it to happen but this is our profession".

"Against Liverpool we played a good match, but it isn't enough - we need more".

Welbeck collapsed in pain after a collision in the Sporting penalty area 25 minutes into the game at the Emirates and immediately waved for medical attention as he writhed on the ground.

Emery confirmed the injury was "serious" but the Gunners will wait to learn the full extent of the 27-year-old's issue.

The English forward jumped for a header with Bruno Gaspar in the first half and came down awkwardly.

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.

The point secured the Gunners' place in the next stage of the Europa League as Unai Emery's team extended their unbeaten run to 15 games.
