Arsenal’s latest injury worry - Danny Welbeck limps off after rolling his ankle

Arsenal face a nervous wait to see if their growing injury crisis has deepened even further after Danny Welbeck hobbled off during England's 1-0 defeat of Estonia.

The 23-year-old left the field after appearing to go to ground with an ankle knock towards the end of the Euro 2016 qualifier in Tallinn. According to Sportsmail's Neil Ashton, he limped along the touchline before heading directly to the dressing room with an England physio.

Three Lions manager Roy Hodgson played down the extent of the injury and claimed that Welbeck would be fit to return at the weekend, saying: 'I don't think he's injured. He just rolled his ankle slightly. The doctors are not worried about it.'

Wenger is already without TEN players with Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta, Olivier Giroud, Mathieu Debuchy, Serge Gnabry, Yannick Sanogo, Theo Walcott and Laurent Koscielny sidelined by injury - while Calum Chambers is suspended for the next game.

The Gunners face Hull City at the Emirates on Saturday as they try and get their Premier League campaign underway after a slow start.
