Welbeck steps up recovery 0

The recovery of Danny Welbeck seems to be going very well. As Sky Sports claim, the forward has returned to Arsenal’s London Colney training base as the next phase of his rehabilitation begins.

Welback suffered a broken ankle back in November, in Arsenal’s 0-0 Europa League draw against Sporting Lisbon. He tried to take advantage of a cross by Stephan Lichtsteiner. He landed very awkwardly and it was immediately clear things were far from right as he stayed on the ground, notably in significant pain. The medical staff applied an oxygen mask as they stretchered him off the pitch. The ankle breaking was soon confirmed by the club.

It’s not exactly easy to recover from an injury, especially in the realms of professional football. It’s the kind of sport that demands you to be in a ‘go go go’ state of mind, pretty much 24/7. If there’s ever anything that gets in the way of that, like an injury, then it can cause a multitude of problems for fans, media members and the player themselves. That sounds ridiculous, but such is the nature of this game we know and love.

Welbeck to go on a free? 0

Danny Welbeck is an intriguing figure and we mean that in the nicest way possible. He was always being groomed for the top of the mountain in English football, and contrary to popular belief, we think he’s lived up to the hype. While there have certainly been a few stumbles along the way, the same can be said of many top stars who are now enjoying great success on a European and world stage. We aren’t about to suggest that he’s the second coming of Henry or anything like that, but you get our point.

Arsenal have sounded out Lille’s Nicolas Pepe as the preferred option to replace Danny Welbeck, according to Gary Jacob of The Times.

Welbeck’s End

Welbeck suffered a broken ankle in Arsenal’s Europa League goalless draw at home against Sporting Lisbon, and he isn’t very likely to play for the club ever again. The forward has undergone two surgery procedures and his way back to the pitch is expected to be a long one, and with his current deal expiring at the end of the season, he most likely won’t be offered a new one.

One of the worst things you could possibly have to deal with in this sport, as a player and as a fan, is a big injury. That’s the card Arsenal supporters have been given with Danny Welbeck and while there are a series of other ‘big’ stars in the squad that would probably have been viewed as more important than the Englishman, but that doesn’t erase the fact that he was on a great run of form and deserves to have seen out the remainder of the campaign.

According to Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi, the Gunners may need to dip into the transfer market in January to replace the injured Danny Welbeck. The England international suffered a broken ankle against Sporting Lisbon and has had two operations to fix the problem.

Not ruling signing a replacement for Welbeck

While boss Unai Emery has stated that it will give a chance to others players, including youngster Eddie Nketiah, the clubs head of football did not rule outing signing a replacement. Talking about the injury, Sanllehi told Sky Sports: “That is absolutely something unplanned,”

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.

Nketiah’s moment? 0

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.
