Danny Welbeck suffers serious injury as Arsenal qualify for knock-outs despite disappointing draw with Sporting

Danny Welbeck suffered a serious injury in the draw with Sporting


This was another step forward for Unai Emery’s Arsenal, but it certainly did not feel like that. On a night when they completed their primary target of qualifying for the Europa League knockout stages, any feeling of triumph was nullified by a traumatic and severe injury to Danny Welbeck.

Arsenal had believed a win would be needed to guarantee their qualification from the group stage, but the defeat of Ukrainian side Vorskla Poltava by Qarabag meant that this solitary point, against a fiery Sporting CP, was enough to see them through. It is a combination of results that should have relieved the tension when it comes to European football for the rest of the year, but instead the loss of Welbeck – and a later injury to full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner – will leave Emery’s squad feeling the strain.

The injury to Welbeck, which left several Arsenal players visibly upset, changed the mood at the Emirates and the tone of the performance. It was only at the end, when Sporting were reduced to 10 men, that Arsenal really looked close to sealing a victory. Even then, they could produce nothing that took the mind away from Welbeck and his agony.

Welbeck’s injury was the defining moment of a first half which Arsenal dominated despite the best efforts of the Sporting fans, who were doing their best to make this feel like an away game for Emery’s side. The sheer demand for tickets in Lisbon had resulted in Arsenal allocating the away fans with a larger-than-usual number of seats here, and the atmosphere was far more boisterous than Arsenal have come to expect in their Europa League fixtures.

Welbeck had looked lively in the opening stages, when he and Henrikh Mkhitaryan had combined well with 18-year-old Emile Smith Rowe in attack. Mkhitaryan almost picked out Welbeck with a low cross, before Smith Rowe curled over after a weaving run through midfield. 

Alex Iwobi also looked bright going forward, while central midfielder Matteo Guendouzi nearly forced an own goal out of Sporting defender Jeremy Mathieu. Only a goal-line clearance from Sebastian Coates saved Mathieu’s blushes, and it was so close to trickling into the net that Emery had already begun to celebrate on the touchline.

With Sporting only offering the most minimal threat on the counter, Welbeck looked the game’s most dangerous player. First he headed wide from a corner, and then another header was saved by Sporting goalkeeper Renan Ribeiro. It was in his efforts to score this second attempt that Welbeck landed horribly on his right ankle. His treatment on the pitch, which included an oxygen mask, was worryingly lengthy and clearly disturbing for his team-mates. The 19-year-old Guendouzi, in particular, was transfixed by the sight of Welbeck lying prone on the floor.

While the severity of these injuries is rarely made clear until the following day, at the earliest, there can be no doubt that this was a major problem for Welbeck, who was earlier named in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the upcoming matches against the United States and Croatia.

With Welbeck’s contract due to expire at the end of the season, any long-term injury will also cast doubt over the 27-year-old’s future as an Arsenal player. 

Emery would have been thankful that he had named Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the bench as a direct and high-class replacement for Welbeck. It was Aubameyang who went closest to opening the scoring in the first few minutes of the second half, when his near-post strike grazed the top of Ribeiro’s bar after another whipped Mkhitaryan cross.

Smith Rowe continued to cause problems with his direct running, but the nature of Welbeck’s departure appeared to have sapped some of the home side’s vigour. That said, they remained a class above Sporting, who had sacked manager Jose Peseiro in between this fixture and their meeting with Arsenal in Lisbon last month.

The pressure was relentless, and it was only the injury to Lichtsteiner, who pulled up when chasing a through ball down the right wing, that threatened to disrupt the home side’s rhythm. Arsenal continued to push, but they consistently fell short with either the final pass or the crucial shot on goal. Iwobi blasted a cross behind the goal, while Aubameyang’s close range effort was well blocked.

Their hopes were boosted when Mathieu hacked the sprinting Aubameyang to the ground in the final moments, an offence for which he saw a straight red card. But Aubameyang sent the resulting free kick high into the stands, and that was to be that on a difficult night.

Alex Iwobi on the injury

“It’s very mentally challenging and unfortunately for Danny he’s had a few. We wish him all the best.”

Some Arsenal Opta facts for you

  • Arsenal failed to score for just the second time under manager Unai Emery, also drawing a blank against Man City in the Spaniards first game in charge (0-2).
  • Sporting CP failed to have a single shot on target in either of their meetings with Arsenal this season.
  • Excluding qualifiers, Arsenal have kept three consecutive clean sheets in European competition for the first time since the 2007-08 Champions League group stages.
  • Sporting kept their first away clean sheet in the Europa League since September 2011 (2-0 vs FC Zurich), ending a run of 18 games in which they’d conceded.
  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had twice as many shots as any other Arsenal player (4), but not a single one of these was on target.

Welbeck taken to hospital

According to Jake Humphrey on BT Sport, Welbeck has been taken to hospital for tests. Hope you’re alright, Danny! 

Petr Cech’s thoughts

It took us a while to open them up, this is the kind of game you need to score and we didn’t do so. We wanted to win. 

It looks like a serious injury and then Stephan after. We knew at half time we are doing good things, need to keep up the intensity. We take the draw and move on. 

Bad night for Gunners

This is the moment Lichsteiner pulled up with that injury. Could be set for a while on the sidelines if that is a hamstring. 

FULL TIME

What a game. I really hope BT Sport remembered to record it because I want to watch it again.

90 mins +5 – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

90 mins +2 – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

A roar about as loud as the one you get during a swimming race while at school carries around the Emirates as five minutes of added time are announced. I’m pretty sure that even if this game went on forever nobody would score.

90 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Aubameyang lines it up and whacks his shot over and wide. Uuuuuuuurgh.

 The Emirates crowd didn’t even really react when that red card was handed out. I’m not sure many people in this ground care that much.

88 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

RED CARD! What? I am confused. Mathieu has been sent off for sliding in and taking down Aubameyang on the edge of the area. 

He was through on goal, a goal-denying challenge… but there was another defender covering.

It’s a free-kick. Could this be it? 

86 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Arsenal slowly passing their way around the pitch. Nobody’s scoring here tonight. Sporting keep clearing, Arsenal keep trying to attack. 

83 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

More good play from Arsenal and most of the best of it is coming from Iwobi, who has come to life magically in the last 10 minutes. 

81 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

So close Mkhitaryan! Iwobi does really well to trick his way into the area and then passes low across the box. Mkhitaryan stabs at it… the goalkeeper saves.

78 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

There’s a chance now for Sporting. It’s two v two… Diaby moves inside to shoot and is blocked. Arsenal players get back and Acuna wins a corner with a cross from the left. 

Sporting are then caught offside from a set piece. 

75 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Luis is booked for a foul on Sokratis. Arsenal still ca’t create anything that looks like a real chance. Sporting are defending really deep and compact, making it difficult to find space in a sea of bodies.

73 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Lichsteiner’s tyres have burst. He pulls up off the ball with what is clearly a hamstring injury and sits down immediately. Guendouzi absolutely wipes out Nani with a comedy foul and is booked, deservedly. That’s bad news for Lichsteiner.

70 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Here’s a separate wee article on Welbeck’s injury. It has some more photos and bits like that. 

68 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Arsenal win a corner and Sporting players are so annoyed about it that the referee books one of them. The corner is pretty poor and then Iwobi kicks the ball into the crowd. 

66 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Iwobi tries to dribble past two players and loses the ball. This game sucks. Delete the game. Bring back the Cup Winners Cup. Make this the Uefa Cup and have knock-out games.

63 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Carl Jenkinson goes back into a box under the stairs until next November as Sead Kolasinac comes on to replace him. 

Acuna whips in a ball from wide left but it’s cleared by Holding, who is having another great game. Guendouzi is on the right wing now trying to cross in, the goalie punches away.

This match feels like a pre-season friendly. Nobody on the pitch really seems to care that much.

60 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

AUBAMEYAAAAAANG hits the side-netting. I might do the rest of this in the voice of the ISS64 commentator. He’s taken it with his… RIGHT FOOT! 

In all seriousness, Aubameyang has found a chance to shoot on the angle inside the box and launched a thunderbolt that smashed the side-netting, prompting many in the ground to think it was a goal. It was not a goal. There are no goals.

57 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Ramsey’s everywhere tonight. He’s been great, chasing the ball down, pinging passes all over the place. Just a great wee player.

54 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Ramsey’s playing a very disciplined holding midfield role today. It must be killing him inside that he’s not allowed to run up the pitch whenever he wants (all the time).

Holding does really well to read a through-ball, moves towards it, drops back, then knicks the ball away. 

Smith-Rowe is on the ball on the left now after a lovely bit of play and beautiful sliced pass from Ramsey to stretch the pitch. Smith-Rowe loses his balance while shooting.

51 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Better from Sporting! Jenkinson stands up and blocks a volleyed effort at goal inside the area from Diaby. Iwobi carries the ball up the left, wins a corner, nothing comes of it.

48 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Mkhitaryan attacks the space as Lichsteiner heads the ball on and Aubameyang meets the cross! He’s hit the side netting! So close at the start of the second half. The tempo’s gone up here, which is a good thing.

The ball drops from the sky and sits up perfectly for Jenkinson to hit a power volley rocket shot! He lines it up… this could be a worldy! Jenkinson completely misses the ball.

KICK OFF 2

If the scores stay the same, Arsenal are through to the next round already. Will the players have their heads switched on for this half? 

More on Welbeck

There are some really not nice images of Welbeck for this. He jumps for the header, lands and as he falls the studs on the very front of his boot get caught in the turf and his leg naturally twists. He falls down with the weight of Gaspar on top of him and… well you can probably imagine what happens next. It was clear immediately he was in trouble.

Joe Cole’s reaction

“It’s difficult. It’s your friend, to see him in a lot of pain when it’s as graphic as this. It takes the game about 20/30 minutes to settle down and that’s what happened. It went to a nothingness because the players had it on their mind.”

Mesut Ozil reacts to Welbeck

HALF TIME

Well the game’s not great to watch but clearly it’s been overshadowed by that horrible injury to Danny Welbeck. 

45 mins +2 – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Arsenal have a free-kick wide right of the box.

It’s swung in and behind for a goal kick. Mkhitaryan has been absolutely useless in the recent games I’ve seen of him. 

44 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

I‘ve just seen a photo of that Welbeck injury and I can confirm that you should definitely not do that. I’m away to burn my eyes and drink to forget. To summarise briefly: his right foot looks to have dislocated and it’s horrible. 

🙁

41 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Sporting sort of claim for a penalty as the ball bounces near Holding’s arm in the Arsenal area but in the end, justice is done and nothing happens. Nothing at all.

39 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Arsenal win a corner thanks to the work of Smith-Rowe. It’s taken short, Lichsteiner is teed up 25 yards out and shoots wide of the top corner. 

36 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Nothing much to report here. Arsenal enjoying the possession but any intensity that was in the game before has mostly gone. Lots of passing between defenders going on.

33 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Danny Welbeck down and clearly in a lot of pain. He’s receiving oxygen. Hard to tell what happened – looked at first like a head injury – but seems to be a problem with his leg (knee?). Guendouzi looking really, really troubled. Can’t take his eyes off it…

— Sam Dean (@SamJDean) November 8, 2018

31 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Aubameyang comes on to replace Welbeck. Arsenal attack straight away, trying to avenge Welbeck’s broken leg (I dunno if that’s the problem btw) immediately. A cross into the six yard box is just slightly too far away from any Arsenal forward.

28 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

This sucks. Welbeck’s being given oxygen now as well, it’s clearly a bad injury. Arsenal players look distraught. Guendouzi is particularly concerned. 

The poor boy. I think he might have come down on his ankle but with all his  weight on it. Like when you roll your ankle x 8million. It’s such a shame, he was starting to find form and playing really well.

26 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Welbeck arrives at the back post to connect with a decent cross from Lichsteiner but he’s landed awkwardly and is in a bit of pain.

Hmm he’s really not happy actually, the physio’s put him on his side and he’s rolling around. And they want a stretcher. He might have goosed his ankle here.

25 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

It’s taken about one minute 30 for Arsenal to take a throw-in, win another, then take that. High octane stuff here at the Emirates.

22 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Welbeck wins a header over Coates but the shot is wide. Coates used to play for Liverpool don’t cha know. 

Nani is dancing between defenders and Lichsteiner’s had enough, diving in from behind and catching his Achilles. Naughty Lichtsteiner.

19 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Great turn from Smith-Rowe! He does a little Cruyff turn on the move to get behind the defence on the right but Sporting recover. Mkhitaryan and Guendouzi link on the right, the ball is crosses in and WELBECK IS THERE! The goalkeeper blocks! I’m not sure Welbeck even connects with the cross there.

 Sporting enjoy possession for a bit but then Gudejl punts a shot over into the North Bank.

16 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Sporting trying to play their way out of danger but it keeps breaking down at halfway. Ramsey carries the ball a bit and then gestures to teammates to ask where they are – no passes on.

Smith-Rowe tries a shot from the D but blasts it over.

13 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Mkhitaryan crosses into the box but it’s poor and nothing happens. It’s definitely not a Champions League game here. Lots of empty seats, quiet crowd, slow football.

10 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Smith-Rowe is being asked to chase a lot of passes into space on the right channel but can’t quite get close to them yet. 

8 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

It’s a fairly low-tempo game so far, Arsenal looking to dominate the ball early on. This is a decent attack now though. Mkhitaryan into Smith-Rowe… but he’s shut down in the box. Sporting break, Nani finds Montero but Guendouzi cleans up the danger.

5 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Mistake by Holding at halfway and Sporting chip the ball over the top for Montero to chase but it’s a little too much for him.

Smith-Rowe is really advanced, almost as a second striker.

3 mins – Arsenal 0 Sporting 0

Arsenal are patient on the ball from the start and pass it around the back, just getting a feel for the game. Sporting seem happy to sit back and let Arsenal play. Nani has already gone to ground.

KICK OFF

Here we go! Sporting get the game started.

Here come the teams

It’s time for Arsenal’s theme tune, which seems to be ‘Right Here Right Now’ by Fatboy Slim. Very modern.

15 in a row?

A look at Arsenal’s recent form might have you think things aren’t going so well – two draws and a narrow win over Blackpool in their last three games is pretty dour stuff after an 11-match winning run.

But the bigger picture explains they are now 14 games unbeaten, and did really well to avoid defeat against Liverpool last week. 

Will they make it 15 tonight? They certainly should do.

Team news!

 That trio of Iwobi, Ramsey and Welbeck do indeed start, along with 18-year-old Emile Smith-Rowe. Meanwhile, test your Portuguese out with Sporting’s lineup announcement:

Remember, though: it’s not “Sporting Lisbon”

A Sporting chance

While the likes of Vorskla Poltava and Qarabag may not be the usual types Arsenal mix with on the European stage, they have at least ensured a safe passage towards the knockout stages of the Europa League. Arsenal’s win in Lisbon a fortnight ago, against their only credible Group E challengers, means that a similar result in the return fixture tonight will confirm qualification.

Unai Emery’s second-tier European pedigree is such that Arsenal ought to be taking the latter stages seriously, especially given the prize on offer at the end of it these days.

Emery negotiated Sevilla’s way through the relative backwaters of Continental football to lifting the trophy three times in as many seasons between 2014 and 2016 – to add a fourth to his CV this season would be warmly welcomed by an Arsenal fanbase who have grown weary of glancing enviously at the trophy cabinets of Manchester City and Chelsea.

It might well be a night for back-up players – Alex Iwobi, Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck are all expected to start at the Emirates – but Sporting are, in name at least, illustrious visitors.

Team news on the way soon, and JJ Bull will be here shortly before kick-off to guide you through it…

Redskins vs. Titans odds, line: Picks, best predictions from proven computer model on 16-6 roll – CBS Sports

The Tennessee Titans and Washington Redskins, two teams in desperate need to stay alive in the NFL playoff picture, meet up in Nashville at 4:30 p.m. ET on Saturday. Tennessee (8-6) likely needs to win out and have help to make the playoffs. Washington (7-7) is in a similar boat, but is down to a fourth-string quarterback and ravaged by injuries. Overall, the Redskins’ path to the postseason appears much more challenging. Vegas agrees, setting Tennessee as an 11-point favorite in the latest Redskins vs. Titans odds, up from an open of 10. The over-under, or total number of points oddsmakers believe will be scored, is 37.5 after opening at 37. The weather won’t be a factor, as the forecast is calling for temperatures in the 40s, sunny skies, and light winds. Before making any Redskins vs. Titans picks and predictions for this critical battle, be sure to check out the projections from SportsLine’s Projection Model.

The advanced computer model simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. SportsLine’s proprietary computer model went 176-80 last season and beat more than 95 percent of CBS Office Pool players in 2016 and ’17. It also performed better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. Additionally, it went 48-34 on A-rated picks against the spread last season, and $100 bettors who followed it the past two seasons are up nearly $4,000. 

The model has continued to nail its top-rated picks in 2018, entering Week 16 on a blistering 16-6 run. For the season, it is now 30-15 on all top-rated picks, extending its two-year run to a strong 78-49. And when it comes to all straight-up picks, the model finished Week 14 at 147-75 on the season, ranking in the top five on NFLPickWatch.com. 

Now the model has dialed in on Redskins vs. Titans (stream live on fuboTV) 10,000 times. We can tell you the model is leaning Over, but it also says one side of the spread hits in well over 50 percent of simulations. You can only see that one over at SportsLine. 

The model knows the Redskins will once again be looking to ride their running game given their calamitous quarterback situation with Josh Johnson as their fourth starting QB of the year. Johnson was able to use his legs to extend drives last week against Jacksonville, rushing for 49 yards, and Adrian Peterson added 51 more in a win over the Jaguars

That victory as 7.5-point underdogs helped get the Redskins back to .500 and keeps their playoff hopes intact at 7-7. Against a Titans defense that has allowed 408 yards rushing in the last two weeks, Peterson, Johnson and Chris Thompson should have room to maneuver in Week 16.

Just because the Redskins are coming off a huge upset victory doesn’t mean they’ll cover on Saturday.

The model also knows the Titans are feeling extremely confident thanks to the recent breakout performances by running back Derrick Henry. His 2018 campaign looked like a bust when he entered Week 14 with just 474 yards and five touchdowns on the season, but he’s exploded since that point, steamrolling the Jaguars for 238 yards and four touchdowns and then following that up with 170 yards and two more scores against the Giants

His dominance has paid dividends for the entire roster, taking pressure off quarterback Marcus Mariota and keeping Tennessee’s defense fresh and off the field. The Titans have given up just nine total points in the last two weeks and dominated time of possession against New York, 35:21 to 24:39.

Who wins Redskins vs. Titans? And which side of the spread hits in well over 50 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see which side you need to be all over on Saturday, all from the incredible computer model that has returned nearly $4,000 to $100 bettors.

Solskjaer off to dazzling start, City stunned (1:58)

Steve Nicol rounds up a big day in the Premier League with Man City and Chelsea beaten at home and Man United thrashing Cardiff. (1:58)

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enjoyed the perfect start to life as Manchester United manager with an emphatic 5-1 victory away at former club Cardiff — the first time they had scored five since Sir Alex Ferguson’s last match in charge in 2013.

Solskjaer was named caretaker manager of United following Jose Mourinho’s sacking on Tuesday. One of the question marks over his appointment was a disappointing spell as Cardiff boss, which saw them relegated to the Championship.

One of the criticisms levelled at Mourinho included his unwillingness to pick players from the academy — and Solskjaer immediately remedied that by including James Garner and Angel Gomes in his first squad.

And he couldn’t have wished for a better start as United took the lead within three minutes.

With United’s players looking more comfortable on the ball, Paul Pogba won a free kick on the edge of the Cardiff box. The Frenchman looked set to take it before leaving it to Marcus Rashford, who sent a swerving effort past Neil Etheridge.

There was a swagger back to United’s play as they dominated possession, and were 2-0 ahead on 29 minutes after Ander Herrera’s deflected effort found its way into the back of the net.

Despite United’s dominance, Cardiff were back in the game on 38 minutes when Rashford was adjudged to have handled and Victor Camarasa pulled a goal back from the penalty spot.

However, the visitors ensured they would take a two-goal lead into the break as Anthony Martial finished off a superb passing move including Pogba and Jesse Lingard.

United came out for the second half intent on adding to their advantage as they played with an air of confidence and Pogba almost sent Rashford through with a no-look pass.

And it was 4-1 on 56 minutes as Lingard dusted himself down to stroke home from the penalty spot, having been bundled over in the box.

The style of play was often criticised under Mourinho, but United looked a side transformed in the Welsh capital.

Victor Lindelof epitomised the change in emphasis under Solskjaer as the Sweden international played the ball out of defence before playing in Rashford, who shot wide — and Pogba then forced a brilliant save from Etheridge with a long-range effort.

Lingard added another in stoppage time as United scored a fifth — something they had not achieved since Ferguson’s final match — a 5-5 draw at West Brom.

The victory brought United back up to sixth place and eight points behind Chelsea in the final Champions League place, while Cardiff remain two points clear of Burnley in the final relegation place.
