However, Welbeck's night was over soon after as the striker went down in a heap after challenging for a header midway through the first half and he immediately called for the Arsenal medical team. "The game in Lisbon was also hard but we won and now we can say those three points were very important".

Danny Welbeck looks to have suffered a serious injury after getting stretchered off the pitch during Arsenal's Europa League fixture against Sporting CP. "He had some chances too". He is a very good person, his commitment to us is very big. We'll have to wait for updates from Unai Emery after the game but let's pray it's not as serious as it seemed on TV.

"When one player has an injury like that, every player on the pitch they look at this injury".

The 6-foot winger has been a revelation since leaving Angers for Lille in 2017, scoring 14 goals in all competitions last season before playing a starring role this term. "We are thinking how he can help us in the future".

"Then the players concentrated on the match and we forgot".

"The point isn't enough for us but at the moment our target is to be first in this group", he said. "We don't want it, but this is our profession".

The verde e brancos might be third in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, but they sacked boss Jose Peseiro last week after they lost 2-1 at home to second-tier side Estoril in the League Cup, with Dutchman Marcel Keizer, a former Ajax manager, set to replace him. In our game plan we know we had to be rigorous and they were nearly flawless on that.
