Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang On Bench - Arsenal Team vs Sporting Lisbon Confirmed

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang On Bench - Arsenal Team vs Sporting Lisbon Confirmed

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.

Speaking after the match, Emery said: "It's the worst news tonight, this injury".

"It's very challenging mentally, but sometimes it comes in the game and there's been a lot of injuries, and unfortunately for Danny he's had a few so we're going to wish him the best", he stated.

"He was working well and he was having a good match". "He had some chances too. We don't want it, but this is our profession".

After losing their opening two matches of the season, Arsenal have won 12 and drawn three of their 15 games in all competitions since, including a run of 11 straight victories between August and October.

"Now he is at the hospital".

There was no immediate comment from the club on the seriousness of the injury to Welbeck, whose contract with the north London side ends at the end of the 2018-19 season.

The medical staff then administered oxygen and applied a brace on his right leg before he was taken off on a stretcher.

Meanwhile, Lichtsteiner pulled up with an apparent hamstring injury and is now doubtful for the clash with Wolves.

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

The home side started positively enough with Matteo Guendouzi getting in behind the visitors backline to send a low ball in, but Welbeck's flick was hacked off the line.

Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, Lucas Torreira, Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette were all rested on Thursday, suggesting they will return here.
