Danny Welbeck almost made a dream comeback on Saturday when he arrowed a shot towards the top corner in stoppage time, only for Preston goalkeeper Chris Maxwell to tip the ball over the bar.
After the match the boss reflected on a happy return for Danny and discussed the future of Jon Toral.

- Wenger - Why Giroud was our captain
He has been out for such a long time, that just for him to get 15 minutes was great. I think I had a hesitation. Had we not come back early I would perhaps have brought him on earlier. He thought he had 20 minutes in his legs and in the end he nearly scored, so that’s good.
on whether Jon Toral could be joining Glasgow Rangers…
We work on it to see if it is possible, yes.
on whether that move would be a benefit for Jon…
Yes, because he has played games there [for Granada] but at the moment he doesn’t play and personally I think it would be a good transition for him.
