United Reject Welbeck Hits Hat-Trick For Gunners

Manchester United reject, Danny Welbeck scored his first professional hat-trick on Wednesday, as 10-man Arsenal swept aside Galatasaray 4-1 in the UEFA Champions League.
Welbeck, whom new United Manager, Van Gaal asked to go ‘because he was not scoring enough goals for the Red Devils’, has been scoring consistently since he joined the Gunners.
The England striker, excellent throughout, stabbed in a first-half opener before side-footing a second.
Alexis Sanchez then curled home before Welbeck clipped in his third.
Burak Yilmaz scored a penalty after Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was sent off for a foul, but it was nothing more than a consolation.
The win was Arsenal’s first in this year’s Champions League and means they have three points from two Group D games.
It was also the perfect way for Manager Arsene Wenger to mark 18 years to the day since he was appointed Arsenal boss, and the Frenchman certainly deserves credit for naming an attack-minded side.
With Welbeck playing in his favoured central role and the former Manchester United striker ably supported by the pace and creativity of Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, the Gunners simply had too much for a Galatasaray side who have now failed to win in 10 visits to English sides.
