Danny Welbeck has had a frustrating last six months

Danny Welbeck has had a frustrating last six months, as he has almost been forgotten in some quarters.

The 25-year-old came to Arsenal with a major hope of establishing himself as a first-team striker at a top club. However, failed to score goals almost immediately saw him replaced by Olivier Giroud. After failing to appear even in a single match so far this season, the Frenchman has firmly established himself as the top striker at Arsenal. Welbeck has to do it all again when he returns from a long spell on the sidelines.

After undergoing surgery in September, the striker is expected to be back at the start of 2016. This marks a long period of recovery for the player and he has accepted that it has certainly not been easy. Since coming from Manchester United in the £ 16 million deal, Welbeck has scored four goals in 27 appearances. Most of these appearances have seen Welbeck play as a winger. He was not especially happy with this role at Old Trafford, but Welbeck has not been complaining much at the Emirates stadium. However, the England international remains as one of the few players to have played for both Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.

He says that it is a privilege to learn a lot of things from these two great managers. "It is my first injury that has kept me out for so long. I had my operation and once that is sorted you can be out for a few more months.It is hard but you have to see the positive side and I have learnt a lot more being injured on how to look after your body and prevent injuries.I have to see the positive side and hopefully when I come back, I will be flying," said Welbeck.
