Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came closest to a goal all night when his shot cannoned back off of the post a minute after the break, and from there on it was a backs-against-the-wall performance from the Portuguese side.

The Arsenal forward was challenging Sporting full-back Bruno Gaspar for a header when their legs tangled and Welbeck landed awkwardly on his ankle.

Many of Welbeck's team-mates appeared distressed as he received lengthy treatment and needed an oxygen mask before being carried off on a stretcher.

Has Danny Welbeck played his last game for Arsenal?

The England forward spent six years alongside Nani at the Theatre of Dreams and had made a good start to life under Unai Emery at the Emirates.

"The worst news tonight is these injuries", the Spaniard told a media conference. We are going to wait [for updates].

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

"Danny was working well".

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

Welbeck has always been Arsenal's go to man on Europa League nights, scoring five goals in his past 13 appearances in the competition, but he looks set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after landing on his ankle awkwardly.

"Lichtsteiner is muscular", Emery added.

However, the Gunners have secured their progress to the knockout stages of the competition as Emery seeks to win a major piece of silverware in his debut campaign in charge of the north London outfit.
