Arsenal's Danny Welbeck suffers leg injury against Sporting

ST ALBANS ENGLAND- OCTOBER 30 Laurent Koscielny of Arsenal during the Arsenal Training Session at London Colney

Welbeck has struggled with injuries in recent times but Iwobi hopes to see the Englishman back on the pitch as soon as possible.

The 27-year-old England worldwide was carried off on a stretcher during the goalless draw at Emirates Stadium.

Earlier on Thursday, Welbeck had been named in Gareth Southgate's latest squad for an upcoming friendly with the United States of America and Nations League encounter with Croatia.

The English forward jumped for a header with Bruno Gaspar in the first half and came down awkwardly.

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. His injury was hard also for the mentality of the players because they looked at the big injury, but when you are playing football in competitive matches it can happen.

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

The reaction from youngster Matteo Guendouzi just says it all.

The Arsenal forward is likely to learn today the extent of the suspected break to his right ankle suffered against Sporting Lisbon last night and how long he faces on the sidelines.

England global Welbeck received oxygen on the pitch and was taken straight to hospital after landing awkwardly following a header during the first half at Emirates Stadium.

The move to replace the manager was precipitated by Danny Welbeck's victor in Arsenal's 1-0 win over Sporting in Portugal two weeks ago at a raucous Estadio Jose Alvalade.

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.

Emery readied young striker Eddie Nketiah for his first appearance of the season but was forced to instead bring on Ainsley Maitland-Niles as Stephan Lichtsteiner pulled up injured and had to be replaced.
