Arsenal fans react to Danny Welbeck’s horrendous injury against Sporting

Arsenal fans instantly took to Twitter after last night’s 0-0 draw against Sporting Lisbon to send their best wishes to Danny Welbeck, after the forward suffered a horror ankle injury midway through the first half.

The England international has made only seven starts this season as a result of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette’s form, with only one of those coming in the Premier League.

In fairness, the 27-year-old has taken his chances when they’ve come, scoring five goals in the games he’s played, but his latest injury is another cruel twist of fate for a player so unlucky with finding consistent fitness.

The former Manchester United ace was issued oxygen by the Gunners’ medical staff before leaving the Emirates pitch on a stretcher, as former teammate Nani offered his support whilst current teammate Matteo Guendouzi looked on almost in tears.

Any potential January move away for the striking ace now looks all but off.

Let’s take a look at how fans of the north London side reacted…
