Welbeck, who scored the winning goal in the reverse fixture in Portugal, was replaced by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the 29th minute of the game.

Unai Emery made plenty of changes from the side that drew with Liverpool on Saturday evening with Welbeck among those recalled as the England global replaced Alexandre Lacazette up front against the Portuguese giants tonight.

He received oxygen and had his leg in a protective brace as he was taken off the pitch, with up to 10 medical staff around him as he received treatment.

Welbeck was rushed to hospital after the match and Emery reckons he has broken his ankle.

Welbeck's Arsenal teammates looked visibly distressed as they watched the forward getting treated and took turns shaking his hand as he was carried off the pitch. "The news is that we are going to wait - but we think it's a serious injury".

"Danny is a very good person, his commitment with us is very big".

Numerous fans had differing reactions to how the game went on social media, with some just pleased that they have qualified for the latter stages, whilst others were disappointed with the performances from some of their players.

But it was Welbeck's injury just before the half hour mark that was the main talking point from a largely forgettable Emirates Stadium encounter. "We are following him every match and know he will help us in the future".

Again, we wish Danny all the best in his recovery.
