Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck returned to Old Trafford yesterday to haunt his former club Manchester United. The £16 million forward who was only signed last summer by the north London club was "more a substitute than a line-up player" according to United manager Louis van Gaal but Welbeck had the last laugh as he scored the winning goal and Arsenal won 2-1.
The former United man latched on a loose ball as a result of calamitous defending by Manchester United sealing the current FA Cup holder's place at Wembley as they progressed through to the semi-final, where they are set to face either Bradford or Reading.
