Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang On Bench - Arsenal Team vs Sporting Lisbon Confirmed

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang On Bench - Arsenal Team vs Sporting Lisbon Confirmed

Emery said after the game: "Lichtsteiner's injury changed our idea on the match, we wanted to change for Eddie Nketiah and give another chance for the striker".

"This injury is very big for him, for us and for everyone".

The 6-foot winger has been a revelation since leaving Angers for Lille in 2017, scoring 14 goals in all competitions last season before playing a starring role this term.

"Danny is a very good person, his commitment with us is very big". He's helped us with his behaviour, with his quality and his capacity. But when the match finishes, the first thing they did was ask for him.

"Danny was working well".

Again, we wish Danny all the best in his recovery. "You don't want it to happen but this is our profession".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho taunts Juventus crowd
Manchester Utd manager Jose Mourinho had a few words for Juventus players after his side beat them 2-1 in Turin. He told the channel: "As soon as there was the free kick in there, I had the confidence that I had to take it".

Jeremy Mathieu was sent off late on for the visitors, and he will miss the next game.

The 27-year-old has overcome serious issues in the past, missing large chunks of his career with knee problems.

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.

Welbeck pulled out of the England squad to face U.S. following his injury, having been named in the 28-man squad earlier in the day.

But Arsenal could not take advantage as Aubameyang blasted the resulting free-kick well over the crossbar.

The point secured the Gunners' place in the next stage of the Europa League as Unai Emery's team extended their unbeaten run to 15 games.
