Danny Welbeck: Hopes to play a part in Arsenal title push

Danny Welbeck hopes his return from a knee injury next year can help push Arsenal towards a first Premier League title since 2004.

Welbeck has yet to play for the Gunners this season after undergoing a persistent knee injury, but has outlined aims to return to action in January.

And the former Manchester United striker hopes to help Arsenal push for a first Premier League title since their ‘Invincbles’ season of 2004 when he returns to action.

“In the Premier League there’s teams in the lower half of the table beating teams in the top half and that just shows you the level of competition throughout the whole league,” he told The National.

“There’s not one game where you can take your foot off the gas and we’ve got to be prepared mentally, physically and tactically for every single match we go into to.

“It’s the same for every single team. It doesn’t give one side a better opportunity to win the league. Every three points is going to be vital. And if you get those wins and keep racking them up that’s going to be the most important thing come May.”
