Danny Welbeck Suffers A Truly Horrific Ankle Injury In Europa League

The only blemish on a great opening half from the Gunners, apart from a lack of goals, was an injury to Danny Welbeck which saw him go off after half an hour.

The 27-year-old attempted to get on the end of a cross from the right, but fell awkwardly on his ankle. We needed to be calm and to create chances to score, but it's not easy on the pitch to make clear chances against them.

But a 15th game unbeaten for Unai Emery's side at least assured them of European football after the turn of the year with two group matches left to seal top spot. Welbeck was available for sale in the summer, Arsenal had not offered him a new contract and likely are not planning to do so.

Petr Cech also played, along with starlet Emile Smith Rowe as did Carl Jenkinson.

Mathieu nearly gifted Arsenal the lead as he diverted Matteo Guendouzi's low cross towards his own goal before the ball was swept away.

"This could be a break of something in the ankle", stated Emery. Pepe has scored eight goals and laid on seven assists in 12 Ligue 1 games so far, while he is a player who has been capped nine times by Ivory Coast, scoring three goals.

Arsenal's players were visibly shaken by the incident that took place midway through the first half.

Aubameyang thought he had a late one-on-one to settle the contest but was fouled by Mathieu, who was shown a straight red card for the cynical trip.

Welbeck has always been Arsenal's go to man on Europa League nights, scoring five goals in his past 13 appearances in the competition, but he looks set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after landing on his ankle awkwardly.
