‘We’ve gained three months on Welbeck’

Danny Welbeck

 Arsene Wenger says that the club have had positive news on Danny Welbeck’s recovery that will gain him “two or three months” in his recovery.

The England international underwent knee surgery in May, and had been expected to miss most of the season - but the boss says he could be back sooner than anticipated.

“The good news is that they had to go in and check how [his knee] is healing, and if the inflammation is healing,” Wenger said. “It is healing even better than expected so we think he will be back in the New Year.


“It could’ve been April, so we gained two or three months on the last medical check.

“It gives him a lift because it motivates him to accelerate the process a little bit because when you don’t know what is going on inside the knee, you are a bit uncertain. Now he knows, he can go and work hard, so that is very good news.”
