Super sub, Danny Welbeck, made his first appearance of the season yesterday in an epic 2-1 over Leicester City.

It`s safe to say that after almost a year on the sidelines Danny came back with a bang after netting a 95th minute winner in a fantastic title tussle with Ranieri`s Foxes. The Gunners looks to have been robbed of a chance to win the game after a number of refereeing blunders, however they battled on till the end and a sumptuous Ozil free kick left Welbeck with the chance to be the hero.

And he took it.

The whole stadium, bar a couple of thousand Leicester fans, went wild, players fans and staff alike and after the match Welbeck described the wonderful feeling he felt at not only making his comeback but scoring a lasp gasp winner against title rivals.

“It`s been a long time off the pitch, the longest period of time that I`ve spent off playing matches in my career, it`s difficult, and with a few headlosses along the way.”

“I think you`ve just got to try to stay positive. I had a lot of great help behind the scenes with the medical staff and with James Haycock, who worked with me personally and was great. I think hard work eventually pays off.”

“It was a wonderful feeling to get that winning goal at the end. It was just very important for us to get the three points.”
“With the type of game it was, it was close right until the end and thankfully we got the goal.”

“As soon as I saw Mesut line it up, I just tried to get myself into a nice position, in behind the line of defence. Thankfully it came in my direction and I got the right glance on it.”

“I don`t even know what I was doing [afterwards], the facials were going crazy! I`ve seen a couple [of pictures] and it was just euphoria after and I jumped in the crowd.”
