Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck may have played his last game for Arsenal.
The Gunners ace left the field on a stretcher after sustaining a suspected broken ankle.
The England international was forced off at the half-hour mark after he landed awkwardly on his ankle while contesting with Sporting’s Bruno Gaspar and had Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang take his place.
Although it is yet unknown for how long the forward will be sidelined, the 27 year-old who is out of contract at the end of the season may have played his last game for the club.
Gunners boss Emery said (via Mirror): “It’s the worst news tonight, this injury. It’s clear that we are with him in these minutes.
“He was working well and he was having a good match. He had some chances too.
Welbeck is out of contract at the end of the season, and Emery added: “He’s a very good person.
“His commitment with us is very big. He’s helped us with his behaviour, with his quality and his capacity.
“It’s a very big injury for him, for us, for all people who like and love him as a person.”
Arsenal are still in the Carabao Cup and have just sealed their place in the Europa League knockout stages. With the FA Cup to come in the New Year, Emery may now be considering bringing in a new frontman in the January window.
