Welbeck makes revelation ahead of Arsenal clash against Hull
By Arsenal correspondent Tony Hughes
Danny Welbeck has revealed his Arsenal team-mates serenaded him with a song in the dressing room following his dramatic winner against Leicester last Sunday.
The England international had not played for 10 months when he was sent on as an 83rd minute substitute with the scores level at 1-1.
He responded with a deft header from Mesut Ozil’s free-kick in the final minute of added time to lift Arsenal to third in the Premier League table and narrow the gap on Leicester to two points.
And in a Twitter Q&A on Thursday, Welbeck discussed the incident and revealed the squad paid homage to him for securing the points in his comeback match.
Answering questions alongside team-mates Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alex Iwobi, Welbeck admitted it was one of the biggest moments of his career.

“It’s up there. To score after being out for so long was a great moment,” he said. “Everyone was pleased for me and they sang a song when I came into the changing room!”
Elsewhere in the Q&A, Welbeck revealed who his role models were in football.
“There are loads to choose from… I idolised Giggs, Henry and Ronaldinho.”
