Danny Welbeck proves quality before arriving at Arsenal

Following his deadline day deal to Arsenal, the questions over Danny Welbeck's ability to perform as a dangerously clinical frontman have been brought to the fore again.

Stuck out on the wing for the majority of the last two years at Manchester United, his development has been halted, but given the opportunity he almost always reminds us exactly what he can do.

Moment of truth

Enter September 8 2014 and England's opening Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland, in Switzerland.

As fate would have it Daniel Sturridge pulled up with a slight injury during training leading up to the mach, causing Roy Hodgson to turn to his number two centre-forward.

Terrific performance

Welbeck began the game as a greyhound, chasing down anything and pressing on any opponent with the ball in the final third.

As the game progressed he came into his own, with darting runs leading to his first goal and terrific hold up play which allowed the likes of Raheem Sterling and Wayne Rooney to shine.

His effervescent approach toward this game showed his exactly quality and may have even brought a bit of jealousy toward those denying Man Utd fans.

Pipe down Gooners, you've got yourselves a gem.
