Why I celebrated my goal against Manchester United – Welbeck

Arsenal striker, Danny Welbeck, has said it was “only normal” for him to celebrate his goal against his former club, Manchester United, as the Gunners won 2-0 at the Emirates on Sunday .

Welbeck, a boyhood United fan and a product of the Old Trafford youth system, headed home Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s cross to make it 2-0, after Granit Xhaka’s deflected shot gave Arsene Wenger’s men the lead.

“I grew up there and it’s a special place in my life, but once we get on that pitch it’s just business at the end of the day,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’s for the team.

“When you score you’ve got to be happy. It’s only normal.

“It was really important for us to get the victory with our position in the table.

“We need to be further up there – it’s something that we’re all disappointed about.

“But to get the victory and to hopefully have a good end to the season, it’s a good start.”

Arsenal remain sixth, but can leapfrog fifth-placed United with victory at Southampton on Wednesday.
