Arsenal Under-23s lost 2-1 at Leicester on Sunday, but Danny Welbeck came through 70 minutes unscathed as he continues to build fitness.
The England international was tipped to start in the fifth round of the FA Cup at Sutton United on Monday, however, Welbeck revealed via his personal Twitter account that he won’t be risked at Gander Green Lane due to concerns over their artificial surface: ‘Glad to get 70 minutes today to build up my match fitness. Plastic pitch at Sutton isn't the best idea at the moment. #COYG’. The 26-year-old has been managed very carefully since returning to the first-team squad in January after 8 months out due to a meniscus problem in his right knee which required surgery. His four Premier League appearances, totalling a measly 42 minutes, have all come from the bench. But, Welbeck has been afforded a start in the FA Cup while in his second appearance in the same competition he served a perfect reminder of what the Arsenal fans had been missing with two-goals in the 5-0 drubbing of Southampton.
