Arsene Wenger has revealed that he almost left out Danny Welbeck in the dramatic 2-1 win over Leicester City.

Welbeck came off the bench to head in a winner in the fifth minute of extra time.

And Wenger has revealed how he almost left out the striker who hasn’t played since April.

“For him it is a fantastic day,” Wenger told Sky Sports. “I had a hesitation until the last second to put him in the squad.

“He was number 18 or 19 [on my list] but in the end I trusted the impression we got from his training sessions and thought ‘okay, let’s put him in’.”
