Arsenal said Welbeck was still diagnosed with a definitive diagnosis due in 72 hours. Welbeck is facing an uncertain future. His deal expires at the end of the season and there is no doubt he wants to play for Arsenal again.

Welbeck's injury could force Arsenal into the transfer market in January, with Lille forward Nicolas Pepe a possibility.

Meanwhile, defender Stephan Lichtsteiner is facing four weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury against Sporting.
