Arsenal's Danny Welbeck suffers leg injury against Sporting

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. "Against Liverpool, it was the first game where we came out from the first minute and were everywhere until the 90th". He had some chances too. "They are a big competitive team". I should point out that he played a series of nice passes, clipping them out wide to the full backs and wingers.

"He tells you exactly what he wants you to do, but gives you freedom to expose your talent".

"Now he is at the hospital".

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.

Welbeck is out of contract at the end of the season, and Emery added: "He's a very good person".

"We are very happy with Reiss". He helps us with his quality and capacity.

"This injury is very big for him, for us and for everyone".

Welbeck's England and former Manchester United team-mate Jesse Lingard also sent his best wishes through Twitter, saying "Get well soon brother".

The game only really opened up in the 88th minute when Jeremy Mathieu was shown a straight red for a foul on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the striker raced through on goal.

But Arsenal could not take advantage as Aubameyang blasted the resulting free-kick well over the crossbar.
