Welbeck - This is a boost ahead of the new season

Danny Welbeck was in impressive form as we beat Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday - and he believes the result is a boost ahead of the new season.


We face Leicester City at the Emirates on Sunday, and the England international feels we can go into the game in confident mood.

This is what he had to say after the game:

on the result…

It’s a good way to start and as we’re going into the season starting on Friday, it’s a bit of a positive for us.

on being ready to go for the campaign…

Yes, it’s what we’ve been doing all pre-season, preparing for the start of the season and hopefully we can start with three points on Friday.

on the team being where they should be…

There’s always ways to improve and we will obviously sit back and analyse this game, where we were good and where we were bad and hopefully we can improve our performances and keep on getting better and better.

on Lacazette’s performance…

He’s come into the team and he’s got a couple of goals in pre-season and hopefully he will when the season starts. It’s nice to be playing with him, with the competition for the forward line now, it’s a healthy debate for the manager to have and I think everyone’s looking forward to the new season.
