Unai Emery praised by Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi for coaching style

Danny Welbeck

Danny Welbeck was taken straight to hospital after suffering an ankle injury during Arsenal's goalless Europa League draw with Sporting CP, head coach Unai Emery has confirmed.

The 27-year-old took on oxygen as he was tended to on the pitch for several minutes before he was stretchered off, with some of Welbeck's team-mates were left visibly distraught by his plight.

"We are very happy with Reiss".

Emery said after the game: "Lichtsteiner's injury changed our idea on the match, we wanted to change for Eddie Nketiah and give another chance for the striker". He's helped us with his behaviour, with his quality and his capacity. You don't want it to happen but this is our profession.

"This injury is very big for him, for us and for everyone".

"When you are playing football, when you are playing in competitive matches, it can happen".

Sporting ended the game with 10 men when ex-Barcelona defender Jeremy Mathieu was shown a straight red card after fouling Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who was clean through, although the hosts could not find a winning goal.

The incident knocked the wind out of Arsenal's sails but Welbeck's replacement Aubameyang hit the crossbar as the visitors offered very little in terms of an attacking threat.

"But when he had the injury we needed to play with a right-back which was the reason we played with Ainsley [Maitland-Niles]".

However, they have not lost since, are fifth in the Premier League, have won all three of their Europa League games and are into the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.
