It ended goalless at Emirates Stadium as the Gunners secured a place in the last 32, but the match was overshadowed by the 27-year-old England international‚Äôs ankle injury.
Arsenal fear forward Danny Welbeck has suffered a ‚Äúvery big injury‚ÄĚ after he was carried off on a stretcher during his side‚Äôs Europa League game against Sporting Lisbon on Thursday.
Welbeck was hurt in the 25th minute when he jumped for a header and landed badly on his right ankle.
He received oxygen and had his leg in a protective brace as he was taken off the pitch, with up to 10 medical staff around him as he received treatment.
Some of Welbeck‚Äôs team-mates were also visibly affected by the incident. Welbeck has scored five goals this season, played for England against Spain in September and had been named in Gareth Southgate‚Äôs latest squad for the friendly with the United States and the Nations League match against Croatia.
