Arsenal made five changes to their line-up for a 3-0 win at Swedish Östersunds FK in the Europa League on Thursday night with Danny Welbeck starting upfront for the Premier League side.
With Olivier Giroud recently moved on to rivals Chelsea, there were few alternatives for Arsène Wenger to field in the European competition but the England forward had a quiet game and will have been disappointed not to score.
With the fans not overly enamoured with his performance, these were the best jokes as Danny Welbeck lead the line for Arsenal in Östersund:
So we have to start Welbeck in the Europa league now… pic.twitter.com/iQi7Zv0WqK

Me in 2006 : I can't wait to get home and watch Thierry 👑 shrug a few players off and score the winner in the Bernabau tonight.
Me in 2018 : I can't wait to get home and watch Danny Welbeck get marked out the game by a hotel manager and a petrol station attendant. #AFC

Leave Welbeck here at full time

If Welbeck is a professional football player then I am also a professional football player

Should move Welbeck back to his best position
On the bench

I'm so happy it's an own goal and not a Welbeck goal
— Niall (@Sanogology) February 15, 2018
“Own goal” is a much bigger goal threat than Welbeck and/or Iwobi.
