With claims of being a poor finisher and not a regular enough goalscoring having followed Welbeck during his fledgling career for both United and England, a move to the Emirates Stadium may be the chance he needs to prove his doubters wrong – with a good start having been made with two goals in the midweek England win against Switzerland.

Here are five Welbeck goals that prove van Gaal may have been a little hasty in his judgement of the forward:
