And Gunners boss Arsene Wenger did not sound hopeful tonight, revealing that Welbeck was in pain at half-time and fearing the worst from what could prove a torn cartilage.
He said: “We have to wait for a scan. I hope it is not bad news. I hope it is not a meniscus [cartilage] but there is a little sign of that.
“Danny is a strong boy and we tried to keep him on the pitch but straight away he tried to move and said, ‘It’s impossible’. At half-time I looked at him, he was very down and he must have had pain.
“Let’s hope it’s good news. Good news is that he may not be out for the Euros and bad news is that he will be.
