WELBECK RETURNS TO BOOST BRIGHTON
The return of Danny Welbeck to the Brighton and Hove Albion squad is a timely one after the Seagulls lost their way in terms of getting wins on board in the Premier League. They were on a run of eleven games without a win while Danny Welbeck was out of action due to a hamstring problem. As a matter of fact, the Seagulls didn't win any Premier League game while Danny Welbeck was out of their squad due to injury.
His last game before the injury absence was the 2-1 home win over Leicester City andhe made his return as a second half substitute during the 2-0 home win over Brentford. The Seagulls didn't win any game between the two aforementioned fixtures. Welbeck has made an instant impact for Brighton upon his return from injury.
His first game back was against the Bees and he was subbed on for Belgian forward Leandro Trossardat the start of the second half after the player picked up an injury in the first half. Trossard had scored the opener before going off injured while French striker Neal Maupay added a second goal to make it a 2-0 scoreline at the break. Brighton were able to maintain that scoreline with some last-ditfh defending until the final whistle.
Welbeck made his second appearance since his return from injury against home team Chelsea after coming on for the final ten minutes with the Blues leading 1-0 thanks to a first half header from star man RomeluLukaku. Danny Welbeck was an 80th minute replacement for Argentine player Alexis Mac Allister and he made his mark almost immediately with a very good header in the 91st minute off the good cross from Spanish left-back Marc Cucurella.
The goal from Welbeck ensured that Brighton got a well deserved point from the game.
