Arsenal injury news: Official website posts latest details on SIX players

The Gunners have overcome a defensive injury crisis in recent weeks to maintain their unbeaten record which now stands at nine Premier League games.

They have had several absences but have seen the likes of Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal recover.

Arsenal are still without Laurent Koscielny following his injury from last season and have been handed a new blow with the Danny Welbeck horror injury on Thursday night.

Welbeck remains in hospital and the club say they will provide another update within 72 hours.


However they have kept fans up to date with the issues for another five players.

These include Stephan Lichtsteiner, who also limped off against Sporting last night, Monreal, Koscielny, Mohamed Elneny and Konstantinos Mavropanos.

Arsenal could have Lichtsteiner and Monreal back for Sunday’s game against Wolves.

Welbeck however looks set for a long spell on the sidelines after last night’s ankle injury.

Injury specialist Johnny Wilson reckons Welbeck may have played his last game.

“Injury to #Welbeck. Possible fracture dislocation of ankle which could [be] career ending,” Wilson wrote on Twitter.

“Structures within the ankle which could [be] injured [are] the medial, lateral, anterior & posterior ligaments, tibia, fibula & talus bones as well as chondral surfaces. Will need [to be] imaged #AFC.”

He added: “X-ray will [be] used as 1st line of imaging [to] assess integrity of bones: tibia, fibula, talus, calcaneous & other smaller bones in foot especially – 5th [metatarsal]!.

“He will also [have an] MRI within next 24-48 hrs [to] assess soft tissue structures such as ligaments muscles tendons & chondral surface.”

Arsenal boss Unai Emery said: “This is the worst news tonight. It’s clear he was playing well and had chances. His injury also affected the mentality of the players as they could see it was a big injury.

“When one player suffers an injury like that the mind thinks of the player first.

“I think the players were concentrated for the match but when we finished the first thing was to ask about him [Welbeck].

“He’s a very good person. He has a big commitment to us. This injury is very big for him and us.”
