Arsenal drew 0-0 against Sporting Lisbon in a scrappy match that will only be remembered for a serious injury to Danny Welbeck.

He was treated on the pitch for several minutes, receiving oxygen before leaving on a stretcher and being transferred to hospital. They saw it was a big injury.

"We worked well with very good commitment in a hard game".

He deservedly received a call up to Gareth Southgate's England squad this afternoon but after what looks like a serious injury against Sporting CP tonight, it looks like he will be out for a long spell. You don't want it to happen but this is our profession. He helps us with his quality and capacity. These are the worst things in football but I know you are strong and you will come back, you deserve the best My man'.

The game only really opened up in the 88th minute when Jeremy Mathieu was shown a straight red for a foul on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the striker raced through on goal.

The incident seemed to affect both sets of players for the rest of the game, with little in the way of goalscoring opportunities.

"The point isn't enough for us but at the moment our target is to be first in this group", he said.

"But when he had the injury we needed to play with a right-back which was the reason we played with Ainsley [Maitland-Niles]".

Arsenal's 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Saturday extended the Gunners' unbeaten run to 14 games, but Emery says his side need wins against the Premier League's top sides to be considered genuine title contenders.
