'I have unfinished business in the cup'

The 2015 Emirates FA Cup final was a bittersweet occasion for Danny Welbeck.

After playing a crucial part in our passage to Wembley with an unforgettable quarter-final winner at Old Trafford, the England forward was injured and had to watch from the sidelines as we beat Aston Villa.

Back fit and firing again, Welbeck netted twice in January’s fourth-round win at Southampton, and is determined to leave his mark on this season’s final.

“As a club, with the way the season’s panned out, it’s not a [league] position we want to be in at all,” he told Arsenal Player. “We know that we’ve got the opportunity of playing in the FA Cup final, and it’s something we really want to do our best in.

“With the last cup final, I wasn’t on the pitch and that was disappointing for me. It was a bittersweet moment for me because you know you’ve played your part to get there and your team-mates are winning and lifting the trophy, but you wanted to be a part of that and play a part on the pitch as well.

“It’s difficult but it’s now something that’s behind me and you can’t change it. I’ve got the final to look forward to this season, so it’s something that I’m going to enjoy. I’m going to play the game and try to win the final.

“Wembley is a place I know really well because I’ve played there multiple times,” Welbeck added. “If you know the surroundings a bit better, it gives you that kind of familiarity. It’s a great place to play and what better occasion than the FA Cup final. Hopefully we’ll be able to lift the cup again.”
