Matteo Guendouzi slots into midfield with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey, while Danny Welbeck is up top.

"When one player suffers an injury like that the mind thinks of the player first. The news is that we are going to wait - but we think it's a serious injury".

"I feel there's a good mix between discipline and freedom", added the German, who has featured in all of Arsenal's 11 Premier League matches, including the 1-1 draw against Liverpool on Saturday.

"We worked well with very good commitment in a hard game". "We are thinking how he can help us in the future".

"The objective is for him to come back to us and grow up with us after this experience". His injury was hard also for the mentality of the players because they looked at the big injury, but when you are playing football in competitive matches it can happen.

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

Reports say the suspect may have used smoke grenades and at least one weapon, described as a semi-automatic handgun by witnesses. Twelve people, including a police sergeant, were shot dead in a shooting at a night club close to Los Angeles, police said.

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.

The 27-year-old attempted to get on the end of a cross from the right, but fell awkwardly on his ankle. You can also stream the match via B/R Live and Univision NOW. We needed to be calm and to create chances to score, but it's not easy on the pitch to make clear chances against them.

Arsenal legend Martin Keown was in the BT Sport studio after the game and offered a very honest opinion on Aubameyang's current situation.

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.

Welbeck, who appeared to be in real pain, was consoled by former Manchester United teammate Nani and was given an effusive reception as he was taken off the field of play.
