Danny Welbeck Suffers A Truly Horrific Ankle Injury In Europa League

Arsenal's unsung hero

Arsenal's unsung hero

Ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash between Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sports Mole looks at how Unai Emery's side could line up in North London.

In addition to a troubling injury suffered by Danny Welbeck, confirmed by Emery as a leg break, Stefan Lichsteiner was also forced from the pitch with a hamstring complaint. You can also stream the match via B/R Live and Univision NOW.

"He was working well and he was having a good match".

Arsenal struggled to get into top gear against Sporting, but they did have decent chances to snatch a win that would have guaranteed a top spot in the group.

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.

Welbeck, who had netted more Europa League goals than any other Gunner over the course of the last two seasons, was dubbed the "Welbeck Express" after his clinical strike in the Portuguese capital.

Meet Trump's New Acting Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker
While Whitaker is now Mueller's ultimate supervisor, it was not immediately clear whether that meant Rosenstein would step aside. Whitaker has no intention of recusing himself from overseeing the Mueller probe, the Washington Post reported .

"It is mentally challenging (playing after a teammate is injured) but sometimes it comes with the game, and Danny has had a lot of injuries", winger Alex Iwobi told BT Sport.

"When we have the ball, we're all offensive players".

The Gunners secured qualification for the last 32 with a 0-0 draw against Sporting Lisbon at the Emirates, in a game where Emery fielded a mixed-strength team including Emile Smith Rowe and Carl Jenkinson.

Keown said: "He is the closest thing to Thierry Henry that I have seen since he left the club, he really is that good".
