Welbeck still doesn’t feel at his 100%
After not being able to play in any competitive match for 10 months, Danny Welbeck made his return to the pitch on February 14 when Arsenal faced off with Leicester City and the English forward went through a dream return as he scored a goal which helped his team in securing a crucial 2-1 triumph over the team of Claudio Ranieri.
Even though Danny Welbeck has been consistently appearing in Arsenal’s latest Premier League matches and scored a goal against Leicester City, the 25 year old attacker has recently stated that he still doesn’t feel to be at his best and he is trying to get back to his old form.
"Yes, it is difficult being out for so long and coming straight back into the team, with the intensity at Spurs I found it quite difficult but I try and give my best every single game and see how it goes. It is going to take a while I think. I don't feel as sharp as I did before my operation and I don't know how long it will take but I'm getting fitter and stronger each week" said Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck as he talked to the media about his return to the pitch.
Welbeck also managed to score against Manchester United on February 28 but it wasn’t enough to stop Arsenal from sustaining a 2-3 defeat against the team of Louis van Gaal. Whilst Arsenal still have a chance of taking the title, increasing numbers of fans are taking to putting their money on the daily specials at StanJames, simply because the Premiership title-race has become too difficult to call - just when they think Arsenal will romp home to a win, they slip up.
Arsene Wenger praised Danny Welbeck as the French manager considers his player to have the perfect mixture between pace and strength. It’s evident that Welbeck is a key figure in Arsenal as the Englishman has performed in all of the matches of his club ever since he completed the recovery phases of his injury.
Leicester City still remains at the top of the Premier League but maybe with the return of Danny it can boost the title chances of Arsenal who are searching for their league title but Leicester City are on the verge of stealing it away from Arsene Wenger.
