Arsenal will be without Danny Welbeck and Stephan Lichtsteiner for Sunday’s Premier League visit of Wolves after both were forced off injured in Thursday’s draw with Sporting Lisbon.
Welbeck (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for some time after being taken to hospital following an awkward fall, while Lichtsteiner limped out of the Europa League clash with a muscular issue.
Speaking after the game, boss Unai Emery said: “It’s the worst news tonight, this injury. It’s clear that we are with him in these minutes.
“He was working well and he was having a good match. He had some chances too.
“His injury was with the mentality of the players. They saw it was a big injury.

“When you are playing football, when you are playing in competitive matches, it can happen. You don’t want it to happen but this is our profession.
“Now he is at the hospital. The news is that we are going to wait – but we think it’s a serious injury.”
Mohamed Elneny (thigh) and Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin) are still missing, while Matteo Guendouzi is back in domestic contention after serving a one-match ban.
