Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal outlined his reasons for selling Danny Welbeck to Arsenal in his pre-match press conference ahead of the weekend clash with QPR today, claiming that the academy graduate doesn’t score enough goals.

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:
Stoke City (2008)
Making his debut as a precocious 17 year-old Mancunian, Welbeck had a dream game after coming on as a substitute for United against Stoke City in a Premier League thrashing at Old Trafford. Picking up the ball just inside the Potters’ half and playing a neat one-two with Manucho, the space opened up for Welbeck to smash home a devilish, dipping shot from 30 yards – potentially still his best goal.
