Downbeat Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has been discussing the distressing injury to striker Danny Welbeck.
Arsenal drew 0-0 against Sporting Lisbon in a scrappy Europa League match that will only be remembered for a serious injury to Danny Welbeck.

Speaking after the match which saw the Gunners qualify for the knock-out stages, a saddened Emery said: “He was working well and having a good match. When you play football it can happen. We don’t want that...it is a serious injury.
“He break in the ankle something...He’s a very good person. He has a very big comittment with us. This injury is a very big injury for us and him.”
