Danny Welbeck's 77th-minute goal gave Arsenal a 1-0 win over Sporting Lisbon in Portugal on 25 October

"When you are playing football, when you are playing in competitive matches, it can happen".

Supporters have taken to social media to say how "heartbreaking" it is while TV presenter and lifelong Arsenal fan Piers Morgan was among those to say how "gutted" they are for Welbeck.

"Now he is at the hospital".

He deservedly received a call up to Gareth Southgate's England squad this afternoon but after what looks like a serious injury against Sporting CP tonight, it looks like he will be out for a long spell. He is a very good person, his commitment to us is very big. He's helped us with his behaviour, with his quality and his capacity.

"This injury is very big for him, for us and for everyone".

A heavily changed Arsenal side were unable to break down a dogged Sporting team, who were reduced to 10 men in the 88th minute when defender Jeremy Mathieu fouled striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as he raced towards the area.

Some of his team-mates were also visibly affected by the incident. Then every match we want the best performance from every player.

But Arsenal could not take advantage as Aubameyang blasted the resulting free-kick well over the crossbar.

"The point isn't enough for us but at the moment our target is to be first in this group", he said.

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.

"We were aware of the opponent's quality but we, knowing our capacity and being creative and aggressive with and without ball, could try to surprise here".
