Horrific Welbeck injury concerns Emery
– Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck was taken to hospital after suffering a “serious injury” in their Europa League draw against Sporting on Thursday, the club’s manager Unai Emery said.
Welbeck jumped for a header in front of goal at the Emirates Stadium and rolled over in pain after landing awkwardly on his ankle.
He was given oxygen by medical staff before being taken off on a stretcher to a standing ovation from the home fans.
“It’s the worst news. We think it’s a serious injury,” Emery told reporters, adding that Welbeck, 27, had been taken to hospital. –
