Arsenal won't refuse the point but they won't be happy with the 2-2 result against Hull City in Week 8 action.
The match started well enough with Alexis Sanchez dribbling in from the right wing and firing a 13th minute goal past HCFC goalkeeper Steve Harper. It went downhill quickly after that as Mohamed Diame tugged Mathieu Flamini back to allow himself an opportunity in alone on Wojciech Szczesny which he converted to draw he contest even. Seconds after halftime Per Mertesacker was slow to react to a Tom Huddlestone cross which allowed Abel Hernandez run in front of him for a well taken headed goal. Danny Welbeck scored in stoppage time on an Alexis Sanchez assist to prevent an embarrassing home loss but a draw is simply not a good enough result if Arsenal hope to maintain their regular Champions League spot.

Danny Welbeck can continue his impressive start to his Arsenal career against Hull City.

It's a close call between Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez when it comes to picking an Arsenal striker, but we've gone for Welbeck because of his position as the focal point of the Gunners attack. Hull have been conceding too many goals, they will be missing their first choice goalkeeper due to injury and the England man can trouble Michael Dawson with his pace.

Arsenal dominated Galatasaray 4-1 at the Emirates in Champions League action behind a Danny Welbeck hat trick.

Danny Welbeck announced his claim as Arsenal's first choice center forward with a Champions League hat trick at home against Galatasaray on Wednesday. With news of Olivier Giroud's contract extension coming yesterday questions about who the starter might be when both are healthy were raised. Welbeck provided his answer with a clinical hat trick. The frightening thing is that he could have had a couple more. He certainly looks like he could follow in the footsteps of Daniel Sturridge in finding a home after a transfer between big clubs. Alexis Sanchez also scored for Arsenal and Wojciech Szczesny was red carded.

Danny Welbeck experienced some cramping in his Arsenal debut but should be OK going forward.

Arsenal boss Arsène Wenger believes the forward should be fine going forward. He also praised Welbeck for his play today, saying he looked dangerous. Wenger also added that Welbeck needs to develop his link play better, but that's true for most players who arrive at Arsenal. Arsenal's new signing should be a much better fantasy option against lesser oppositions going ahead.

Danny Welbeck is fit and highly likely to start in the number nine role for Arsenal against Manchester City on Saturday in the early match.

With Olivier Giroud sidelined through December at least, Danny Welbeck should get a significant chance to prove himself in the number nine role starting with Arsenal's match Saturday against defending champions Manchester City. With Alexis Sanchez also capable of playing both wide and central attacking roles, it may be that Arsenal's attack more closely resembles Liverpool's where Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez traded off playing centrally vs. coming in from wide from minute to minute looking to throw the defense off. Welbeck moves from being a fantasy afterthough when he was a reserve at United to being a worthy starter in almost any format.

New Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck fired in a brace to give England a Euro2016 qualifying win in Switzerland.

Arsenal and England supporters with be thrilled with Danny Welbeck's contribution to a huge win for England in Switzerland. After a rotten World Cup and a poor showing against Norway last week England needed a big win. Beating their closest group rival on their own home soil means they should cruise to qualification. Arsenal supporters will be happy to see their new man healthy and productive ahead of his debut against Manchester City on Saturday.

Arsenal have signed Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck for a fee of £16m.

The striker will be expected to contribute right away as Olivier Giroud is out for a few months and Arsenal are desperate for production at the striker position. Yaya Sanogo was horrible over the weekend and is not good enough to be leading Arsenal if they expect to contend for the title. Welbeck can be a very good fantasy option if he can get into form, as he has a great collection of midfielders behind him. Hopeful Arsenal fans are expecting Welbeck to turn into something similar to Daniel Sturridge, but we expect Welbeck to be less lethal and we don't think he'll ever reach Sturridge's level in fantasy or real life.

Manchester United were shocked 4-0 by MK Dons in League Cup action tonight.

On the night that the red half of Manchester was celebrating the arrival of Angel di Maria a mixed team of senior and relative youngsters were thrashed 4-0 by MK Dons. The starting team did contain Johnny Evans, Danny Welbeck, and Adnan Januzaj so the loss can't be completely dismissed as the result of young players. Di Maria or not Louis Van Gaal has his work cut out for him getting the club back to their former glory.

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has ruled out forward Danny Welbeck for the weekend due to a knee injury.

Welbeck will not be available to open up the season against Swansea and that can open up opportunities for Adnan Januzaj and Juan Mata. Mata is an almost guaranteed lock to start but Januzaj could be left on the bench for Chicharito Hernandez if Louis van Gaal decides to play with two strikers. Either way, the news makes Wayne Rooney an even more attractive fantasy option as he'll be relied upon for goals tomorrow.

Danny Welbeck left training on Tuesday with what is reported as an ongoing thigh issue that may keep him out of England's World Cup opener against Italy on Saturday.

The Manchester United forward has been battling Liverpool youngster Raheem Sterling for one of the final unsettled spots in England's starting line-up for Saturday. With news of Welbeck's fitness being in question, Sterling's chances of starting seem to be on the rise. Given the success of Liverpool's attack, there are many who are in favor of Sterling starting alongside club mates Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge to provide continuity. Roy Hodgson seemed to be leaning toward Welbeck but may now change course and go with Sterling even if Welbeck is sufficiently recovered to make the bench.

Danny Welbeck subbed on for Ryan Giggs at halftime to help Manchester United earn a must-win game at Carrow Road.

United boss David Moyes decided to go with Javier Hernandez up top instead of in-form Wayne Rooney who missed out because of his groin injury. The Reds struggled to do much on the offensive side of the ball for most of the game, but a 57th minute goal from Welbeck was all they needed to escape with the full three points. Nemanja Vidic and Jonny Evans anchored the defense and GK David De Gea came up with a few key stops to help the team secure the clean sheet. United will face Tottenham in their next match on January 1 at Old Trafford.

Danny Welbeck took a kick on his knee against West Ham United, and had to leave the match early in the second half. There were worries that he had re-aggravated a serious knee injury but he has returned to training ahead of Manchester United's trip to Hull City.

Manchester United will be happy to have the striker available after three goals in two matches. The matchup isn't great, as Hull keep it tight at home, but Welbeck could be backed to continue his run of form if he continues to lead the line for the champions.

Danny Welbeck scored one and assisted on another as Manchester United cruised past West Ham United.

Danny Welbeck's season hadn't been going particularly well until his Week 16 brace and he added another strong performance in Week 17. Welbeck opened the scoring and then set up Adnan Januzaj for United's second. Ashley Young finished the United scoring with an exceptional effort before Carlton Cole pulled one back late to prevent a United clean sheet.

Danny Welbeck scored twice in the opening 18 minutes for Manchester United and the Red Devils were in cruise control from then on, coasting to a 0-3 win.

After going goalless since August 17th, Welbeck put on his scoring shoes today, being in the right place for both of his tallies and delivering the proper finish. His first goal was a result of an Adnan Januzaj header that bounced off the left post and into Welbeck's path just in front of goal, and he slotted home before the keeper could react. The second came moments later from an Antonio Valencia cross, due to his marker Nathan Baker pulling up with a cramp in the buildup. Again, Welbeck positioned himself and found the target. He should get regular playing time during Robin van Persie's absence so Welbeck could emerge as an interesting 3rd forward option in fantasy lineups.

The Danny Welbeck injury reports have changed consistently since his October knee injury but he has been confirmed as out for Week 11 against Arsenal.

With Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie clicking in attack for United and Chicharito starting to come to life, it isn't clear what Welbeck's prospects would be if he were 100% healthy. As it turns out he still hasn't recovered from what was initially reported as a minor knee injury. His status will likely be re-evaluated after the international break.
