Arsenal manager Unai Emery said that Danny Welbeck suffered a break in his ankle during last night’s match against Sporting CP.

Welbeck sustained an injury during the first half of the match while trying to make contact with Stephan Lichtsteiner’s cross.

He left the field in a stretcher and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came on for him.

Following the match, Emery said that Welbeck’s injury is serious. He said, “The worst news tonight are these injuries. We think it’s a serious injury.

Every injury is different. He broke something in his ankle and it’s a different injury than another. Now he’s at the hospital and the news is at the moment we are going to wait, but we think this is a serious injury.”

There is no word regarding how long Welbeck will be out of action but it seems like he may be out for a while. Arsenal’s next match is a Premier League fixture against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
