Arsenal and England striker Danny Welbeck has had a second operation on the ankle injury he sustained last Thursday in the Gunners 0-0 draw with Sporting in the Europa League.

Unsure if he will play again this season

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is unsure of whether Welbeck will play again this season. The Spaniard is quoted by the BBC, as saying: “Danny will now start his rehabilitation. It’s too early to say how long this will take,”

“Both procedures went well, without complications. Everyone at the club will now be providing Danny with the best possible treatment and support in order to make him fit again as soon as possible.”

The injury of Danny Welbeck in the Europa League was always going to serve as a knock to the Arsenal squad, even though most people wouldn’t have initially thought so. The Englishman has served as a valuable back-up to both Aubameyang and Lacazette in the early stages of the season and there’s no real denying that, especially when you consider how fans viewed him prior to this campaign. Now, though, he’s set to be out for an extended period of time – but the Arsenal first team still wanted him to know that he’s a big part of the family.

Danny Welbeck left the pitch with a broken ankle after 30 minutes of Arsenal’s 0-0 draw at the Emirates against Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League on Thursday. Quite apart from Welbeck’s own woes, his huge misfortune effectively left manager Unai Emery without a senior backup option for forwards Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who have both become vital ingredients in his starting line-up.

Emery now needs to figure out a way to solve the problem. Neither Lacazette nor Aubameyang can be expected to play 90 minutes of every game for the rest of the season. So what are the options, and which one will the manager go for in Welbeck’s absence?

Danny Welbeck left the Emirates pitch just half an hour into Arsenal’s Europa League clash with Sporting Lisbon on Thursday with an initially suspected, and later confirmed, broken ankle. There hasn’t, as of yet, been any reliable information on how long the former Manchester United player will be out, but he certainly won’t be coming back any time soon.

Danny Welbeck suffers yet more bad luck with injuries 0

Some footballers seem to have terrible luck when it comes to picking up injuries. Arsenal and England forward Danny Welbeck is one of those players. On Thursday night, the forward picked up what looked like a horrible ankle injury in a 0-0 home draw with Sporting Lisbon.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery confirmed last night that Welbeck had an ankle break, which is a major blow for the 27-year-old.

Never has any luck

Welbeck just never seems to have any luck when it comes to injury. He will sustain an injury and then work hard to return to action, only for misfortune to strike again and for him to sustain yet another injury problem.

We’ve already spent some time praising Danny Welbeck this season, but it feels like we need to repeat ourselves. After all, we’re talking about a forward that has scored more goals than Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku during this campaign despite being totally written off by, well, pretty much everyone. The England international seems to have fallen into a very specific role and it doesn’t seem like anyone is questioning that, which is a great thing, because he’s doing some sensational work.

Danny Welbeck attracting interest from Everton 0

According to the Daily Mirror, Everton are monitoring Danny Welbeck’s contract situation at Arsenal, as the forward’s contract creeps closer to ending. The forward is in the last year of his deal with the north London club and there has been no news of contract negotiations regarding the striker.

Welbeck looks to be surplus to requirements and can discuss a move to a foreign club in January. However, the Gunners may contemplate trying to sell the striker in the January transfer window, although he could still prove to be an asset to the Gunners.

On Wednesday night, England international striker Danny Welbeck netted a brace in Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Brentford in the Carabao Cup third round.

It was the usual story for the striker as he started a cup game. His Arsenal appearances are usually restricted to starts in the cup competitions and cameos in the Premier League.

Happy to wait for a Premier League start

In truth, Welbeck is unlikely to start many of Arsenal’s Premier League games. However, the striker has stated that he is happy to wait for his chance to start in the top-flight.

The situation between Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil and the German FA (DFB) was extremely tense after Ozil released a three-part statement after the World Cup announcing his withdrawal from international football. He claimed he was receiving racist treatment from the DFB officials, the public and some of the politicians in Germany, while his claims were denied by manager Joachim Low and the rest of the national team.
