Arsenal and England international striker has been injured in the Europa League match against Sporting Lisbon. He was injured in the 25th minute and had to be carried out on a stretcher. Arsenal head coach Unai Emery said that it was a very serious injury and that they will need to wait for the medical team report to find out more about the injury. The match between Arsenal and Sporting Lisbon ended 0-0.
Unai Emery said that it was a disappointing injury as Danny Welbeck was an important member of the team. He said that the player was always eager to help and gave his best on the pitch as well as in the training ground.
Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck has tipped Jack Wilshere to go on to the next level after leaving the Emirates Stadium. The England striker said he was gutted to see him teammate leave the north London club but then he understood the reason for the decision.
Wilshere explained that despite the club offering him a reduced contract offer due to his fitness situation, the incoming manager Unai Emery told him clearly that he would have considerable playing time so he decided to leave Arsenal.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Danny Welbeck is one of four stars ruled out of contention until after the upcoming international break. Back-up goalkeeper David Ospina and defenders Calum Chambers and Shkodran Mustafi make up the remainder of the quartet.
For Welbeck, it is the latest in the procession of injuries that have plagued his career so far at the North London club. He had to come off during the recent 2-1 defeat at Watford with a recurrence of the groin strain which had kept him out previously. Ironically, it was the England striker’s first game back from that injury. It’s a real blow for Wenger who is a big fan of what Welbeck brings to the side. His all-round game perfectly complements the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette and he will be a big miss. Read More
