Danny Welbeck continues to struggle with his knee injury but otherwise Arsenal are fully fit for Saturday's FA Cup final against Aston Villa.
Arsene Wenger faces a number of difficult selection choices ahead of the FA Cup final. He has already telegraphed that he is going to keep to his policy of playing his second choice goalkeeper in domestic cup competitions so we know Wojciech Szczesny will start. The choices on his field players will be more difficult with Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere both showing well in Week 38 as they push for starts in the final. Walcott has seemed a far better fit than Aaron Ramsey on the right side of the attack since he has returned. Wilshere seems less likely to feature as Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil, the two people he is likely trying to displace, have been two of the club's best players this season when healthy. Good problems for a manager to have coming into a final. May 29 - 4:12 PM

After repeatedly indicating that Danny Welbeck would play before the end of the season, Arsene Wenger has reversed course and declared the England international out for Week 38 and the FA Cup final.

It has been a disappointing first season at the Emirates Stadium for Welbeck and Arsenal. After a move from Manchester United was supposed to lead to more playing time, especially at his preferred central forward spot, Welbeck hasn't played much more than he did for Manchester United last season. His opportunities have been curtailed by minor injuries, mediocre form, and the much better form of Olivier Giroud since February. It will be an interesting summer for Welbeck who could, once again, find himself as a spare part at a large club.

Danny Welbeck will miss out on an Old Trafford reunion as he continues to recover slowly from the knee injury that has kept him sidelined since late April.

The knee issue, which has consistently been reported as "minor", is now reaching the lingering stage. Arsenal are generally healthy and have options all over the pitch but supporters, wary of Arsenal's recent injury history as a club, will be starting to worry that what was supposed to be a one or two week injury has now turned into a month-long injury that is still not resolved. Welbeck may be a reserve in the eyes of most but the underlying worry is that Arsenal still haven't figured out how to get and keep their players healthy.

Danny Welbeck looks set to hand Arsenal a welcome fitness boost in time for Sundays’ meeting against his former employers – Manchester United - at the Emirates Stadium.

Welbeck has missed the two previous games because of knee inflammation but the England international is now training fully and in line for a place in the Arsenal squad which takes on United this weekend. However Wenger will almost certainly be without full-back Mathieu Debuchy who continues his recovery from a hamstring strain while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is close but with only 5-starts in 2015 the winger would have to be satisfied with a place on the bench. Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott are better placed in terms of fitness should the French coach decide to make changes following Mondays’ disappointing defeat at home to Swansea.

Danny Welbeck will miss out on the visit of Swansea in Week 36 but is nearing fitness and could figure in Arsenal's Week 37 match with Manchester United.

Arsenal are fairly fit and winning regularly so the absence of Danny Welbeck hasn't been noticed to the extent that past Arsenal injuries have been. Arsene Wenger indicated this week that Welbeck would feature again this season but that Week 36 will come too soon for the England forward to participate. Look for Welbeck in at least one of Arsenal's final three matches.

Arsene Wenger made it 4-games unchanged as Arsenal travelled to the KC Stadium on Monday knowing that a comprehensive victory would steal second place back from rivals Manchester City. However the Gunners’ did recall Tomas Rosicky to the bench as injury ruled Danny Welbeck out.

The England international was not available for selection because of knee inflammation although Wenger confirmed the "problem did not look serious." It is envisaged Welbeck will be available for the visit of Swansea next weekend [if not] then certainly for the Manchester United game 6-days later. The Arsenal physio room is looking unusually sparse these days with only Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain [groin] and Mathieu Debuchy [hamstring] receiving treatment which has coincided with a major upturn in league form.

Danny Welbeck returned from England duty with a minor knee injury that may cause him to miss Arsenal's big match with Liverpool on Saturday.

Welbeck, England's top scorer in Euro2016 qualifying, scored for England against Lithuania but also picked up a minor knee injury in the process. Arsene Wenger indicated that the injury leaves him with "...a little chance to be available for Saturday..." Arsenal have Theo Walcott waiting in the wings for another chance at the starting line-up as well as a number of attacking midfielders - Ramsey, Ozil, Cazorla, and Rosicky - who could all slot into Welbeck's spot and bring different qualities to the table. Starting Welbeck this week in fantasy is a huge risk unless you know that you'll be available to make changes at the last minute before the transfer deadline. Arsenal vs. Liverpool is the early match on Saturday so most formats will allow you to make changes after the line-ups are announced.

Danny Welbeck will return to Arsenal after picking up an injury during Friday nights’ comfortable Euro 2016 victory over Lithuania at Wembley.

Hodgson had already planned to replace Welbeck but a knee injury forced his withdrawal as the game entered its final phase. With a crucial Premier League match against Liverpool coming up England will take no risks given Tuesdays’ fixture in Italy is a non-competitive friendly. Post-match Hodgson confirmed Welbeck had "tweaked his knee" and he will continue to be assessed over the next 24/48 hours although the medical team aren’t overly concerned at this point. England could travel to Turin with only [17] outfield players having seen Leighton Baines, Raheem Sterling and James Milner return to their respective clubs however Ryan Bertrand has been "invited" to join the group.

Danny Welbeck got the last laugh on Louis Van Gaal as the former Red Devil scored the winner for Arsenal as they advanced to the FA Cup semi-finals at Old Trafford.

After Louis Van Gaal ushered Danny Welbeck out of Manchester by saying that he didn't score enough goals, you knew he'd be critical to the outcome on Monday in one way or another. It worked out for the England international as he took advantage of a horrible United back pass to round David De Gea and score the decisive goal as Arsenal overcame Manchester United at Old Trafford. The Gunners will face the winner of the Bradford City vs. Reading replay in the FA Cup semi-finals. In case you were wondering, Welbeck celebrated the goal after he scored it.

It won't show up on the score sheet but Danny Welbeck was the key man in Arsenal's 2-1 win at Selhurst Park.

Danny Welbeck popped up in key spots on a day where Arsenal won despite not playing particularly well. He drew the penalty on the edge of the box that gave the Gunners their first goal. On Arsenal's second goal, Welbeck made a strong run and saw his shot rebound off Julian Speroni into the path of Olivier Giroud who slotted home the winner. The Gunners gave up a late goal and also another near miss as Palace tried to rally late.

Danny Welbeck is back to full training and is available for selection as Arsenal travel across North London for a critical match with Spurs on Saturday.

With Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain still missing for Arsenal, Danny Welbeck returns as the most likely first attacker off the bench for Saturday's North London Derby. Arsenal will likely start Olivier Giroud as their center forward with Mesut Ozil (nominally left), Santi Cazorla (nominally central) and Theo Walcott (nominally right) interchanging behind the Frenchman. If any of those three need a substitution or Wenger feels the need to change things up, Welbeck will likely be the first guy he calls on.

Arsene Wenger indicated in his Friday news conference that while Danny Welbeck won't be ready for Aston Villa in Week 23 that he will be ready for Spurs in Week 24.

Arsenal are flush with attacking options right now so the absence of Danny Welbeck hasn't been felt to any great extent in recent weeks. That said, Wenger indicated that Alexis Sanchez has a "hamstring complaint" that could keep him out of the line-up against Aston Villa. Should Sanchez miss not only the Villa match but additional time, Wenger will be thrilled to have Welbeck as an option along with Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mesut Ozil as he looks to compliment Olivier Giroud in a crucial match for the Gunners in the race for a Champions League spot.

Danny Welbeck's thigh complaint seemed like a minor one when it happened but Arsene Wenger confirmed that there is still no definitive timetable for his return.

While Arsenal would probably like to have as many options available as possible for their trip to Manchester City, Danny Welbeck's ongoing thigh issue is probably low on their list of issues right now. With depth in the form of Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Santi Cazorla, Joel Campbell, and Mesut Ozil there are plenty of bodies to throw into the attack for the visit to the Etihad on Sunday. Welbeck would have been unlikely to start even if he were healthy.

Danny Welbeck faces at least one more week before he is ready to return to active duty for Arsenal as he will miss the Week 21 match with Stoke City.

How quickly things change. For the match against Southampton there were questions about who Arsenal could scrape together to start in the attack with so many player injured or suspended. Fast forward nine days and Welbeck is the only significant attacker who won't be available for Arsene Wenger against Stoke City. Olivier Giroud is back from suspension, Theo Walcott has started a match and played reasonably well, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain did well deputizing for Walcott in recent weeks, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey are back in the squad. The question going forward for Welbeck is what his role is once he is healthy. Anyone owning Welbeck in single-ownership formats should reconsider his value as he seems likely to be in a similar situation to what he faced at Manchester United at the beginning of the season - a valuable squad player but unlikely to start regularly.

Danny Welbeck returned to a central role and scored the winner for Arsenal against West Ham from that position.

Danny Welbeck has long contended that his best position is as a center forward. His speed and athleticism have led to a series of managers playing him mostly as a wide attacker. This season he was solid centrally while Olivier Giroud was out injured but became somewhat anonymous after the Frenchman's return. With Giroud out suspended, Welbeck returned to the central spot and scored a key goal against West Ham in Week 19. The lesson for fantasy managers may well be that Welbeck's value is very much dependent on where he is lined up.
