I am afraid Mr Admin has had a nightmare getting a stream for this game due to storms in the local area which has destroyed my internet and TV, but I did get on at half time long enough to see the horrendous injury suffered by Danny Welbeck, and the face of Matteo Guendouzi said it all. It looks like poor Danny is going to be out fr another long long injury layoff.
But Arsenal had most of the possession although there was very little in the end result, and most players and fans looked like they knew this game did not mean much in the grans scheme of things.
Our bad luck continued in the second half when Stephan Lichtsteiner went off with a hamstring injury and Emery was forced to put Maitland-Niles on despite Eddie Nketiah warming up. Shame….
Right at the end of the game Sporting were reduced to ten men after a foul on Aubameyang, but the Portugese side hardly made any attempt to win the game anyway. Arsenal will go through as Group winners anyway as Qarabag are beating Vorskla, but all in all it was a very boring night for us all, and my storm has made this into a very boring review….
