Social media was full of praise for Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck this evening as he scored the winning goal against Sporting CP in the Europa League.
The Englishman has been down the pecking order at the Emirates for a while now but he continues to get games in cup competitions.
He has already scored two goals in the league cup, both coming against Brentford.
He also scored one goal against Vorskla in Arsenal’s last Europa League clash.
Finally, he has one goal in the Premier League where his appearances are much more limited.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, as expected, are the first choices for Unai Emery in the league and have both shown why.
Safe to say, Arsenal fans were impressed with Welbeck’s latest goal.
