What have Arsenal announced about Danny Welbeck's injury?

Images showed Welbeck's right ankle bent at an unnatural angle, and Emery told his postmatch news conference: "The worst news tonight is this injury".

"When one player suffers an injury like that the mind thinks of the player first", he said.

Meanwhile, fellow Arsenal star Ozil tweeted his support to the England worldwide.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery said: "He was working well and he was having a good match".

Henrikh Mkhitaryan was singled out by a number of supporters as one of those that deserved criticism for his display in the game. It would have been frustrating as an Arsenal fan, however, I'm sure they'll realise just how good the opposition was.




Arsenal said in a statement that 27-year-old Welbeck would continue to be assessed. "We are going to wait". You can also stream the match via B/R Live and Univision NOW.

"But Danny is a tough lad so if he's on the floor, I know its something serious so he's in hospital now and we'll see what happens". But when the match finishes, the first thing they did was ask for him.

With some of the game's intensity lost following the serious injury, neither side were able to break through as Arsenal secured the point they needed to qualify for the next round.

But it is believed that Welbeck broke his leg - something which is likely to keep him sidelined for the remainder of the season - based on the reactions of the players around him.

"Injury to #Welbeck. Possible fracture dislocation of ankle which could [be] career ending", Wilson wrote on Twitter.
