Arsenal manager boss Arsene Wenger admits he almost left Danny Welbeck out of his squad for victory over Leicester City


“Yes, on Friday morning I was not convinced that I would include him in the squad, because I planned to play him next week,” said Wenger.

“I was going to give him one more week training, but his last two training sessions were so convincing that I decided to include him.

“It paid off today, and we are all very pleased for him.”

Recall, that the striker hadn’t featured for the first team since April 26.
