Unai Emery issues injury update on Danny Welbeck

Unai Emery issues injury update on Danny Welbeck

And while Nelson may not be a ready-made replacement for Welbeck, Emery says he is keeping a keen eye on his progress.

Arsenal are now fearing the worst as Emery issued an update after the 0-0 draw with Sporting.

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

"Unai's very intense in training and he's demanding because he knows how good we are". He helps us with his quality and capacity. "He had some chances too".

'His injury was hard for the mentality of the players because they looked at the injury. They saw it was a big injury.

"When you are playing football, when you are playing in competitive matches, it can happen".

A heavily changed Arsenal side were unable to break down a dogged Sporting team, who were reduced to 10 men in the 88th minute when defender Jeremy Mathieu fouled striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as he raced towards the area.

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.

Unai Emery made plenty of changes from the side that drew with Liverpool on Saturday evening with Welbeck among those recalled as the England global replaced Alexandre Lacazette up front against the Portuguese giants tonight. And we want to give that on the pitch and try to get the best of what he wants from us on the pitch. "We think [they are] serious injuries".

Caretaker Sporting boss Tiago Fernandes said: "The players did exactly what I asked them to do".

"We were aware of the opponent's quality but we, knowing our capacity and being creative and aggressive with and without ball, could try to surprise here".
