Arsenal's Welbeck back in full training

Danny Welbeck is treated at Etihad Stadium

Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck has returned to full training after seven months out with a knee injury.

The England international, 26, has been sidelined since injuring his right knee during the Gunners’ 2-2 Premier League draw at Manchester City on 8 May.

He had missed the first seven months of last season with another knee injury.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said: “It is fantastic. For him, it is like starting a new career because he has been out for such a long time.”

Wenger, whose team host West Brom on Boxing Day (15:00 GMT), added he would be “patient” with Welbeck.

Welbeck has scored 13 times in 49 appearances for the Gunners since joining from Manchester United for £16m in September 2014.
