The past 21 months have been the most difficult of Danny Welbeck’s career - so it was particularly pleasing to see him make his Premier League comeback at Swansea City last weekend.
According to Arsène Wenger, the way in which Welbeck has handled the psychological blow of suffering two major injuries is testament to his positive outlook.

“Some players have big injuries and you observe them in the first three months and you think, 'my friend, you will struggle' because they have a handbrake,” the boss said. “But some players come back like they have never been injured and he is one of them.
“He is a young, promising striker - he has a fantastic spirit and people sense that. He is genuine, committed and humble and you do not find that too many times together.
“He has pace, good technique and is committed - he wants to help the team. He is a good finisher as well and before he got injured you could see that was coming out.
“Suddenly it was coming and so he was stopped just at the wrong moment.”
