The forward landed badly after challenging for a header and needed to be stretched off the pitch after some lengthy treatment, which included him requiring oxygen.

"Danny remains in hospital and will continue to be assessed".

"We're not in the best moment but we have to react to it", said the Wolves boss.

"I'm just trying to improve every day, trying to work a lot but I'm happy to be here in the Premier League and I try to do my best". We are going to wait [for updates].

The incident knocked the wind out of Arsenal's sails but Welbeck's replacement Aubameyang hit the crossbar as the visitors offered very little in terms of an attacking threat. "We think it is serious injury and it is clear in this minute he was working well and playing a good match, one chance also he had but [he could] not score".

After losing their opening two matches of the season, Arsenal have won 12 and drawn three of their 15 games in all competitions since, including a run of 11 straight victories between August and October.


"His injury also [impacted] the mentality of the players, because they looked and saw it's a big injury".

Doctors are waiting for the swelling to reduce before making a definitive diagnosis - but there are concerns Welbeck has suffered a break, dislocation and ligament damage.

Welbeck's contract is up at the end of the season and, asked whether he might consider offering Welbeck a new deal as motivation for his recovery, Emery was characteristically noncommittal. It was the Frenchman's first Chelsea goal since May, but Maurizio Sarri is not anxious about him.

"He's wealthy boy now, it's nothing to do with that, but for his mental well-being". I think that link through the club is stronger than ever.

What have independent medical experts said about Danny Welbeck's injury?

"Injury to #Welbeck. Possible fracture dislocation of ankle which could [be] career ending", Wilson wrote on Twitter.
