Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to hail goalscoring hero Danny Welbeck after he scored a late winner to give Arsenal a 2-1 win against Leicester.
Welbeck was making his first appearance of the season after a long-term injury and came on the pitch in the 83rd minute with the score finely balanced at 1-1.
But in the 95th minute, the 25-year-old got the faintest touch to a Mesut Ozil free-kick to send the Emirates into delirium.
Gunners fans posted some brilliant tweets to express their delight at the former Manchester United man, highlighting the importance of the goal.
The win means Arsenal are now just three points behind league leaders Leicester and two points ahead of both Tottenham and Manchester City, ahead of their clash later this afternoon.
Leicester had been given the lead after Jamie Vardy’s penalty right at the end of the first-half. However, momentum shifted to the home side when Danny Simpson was sent-off in the 54th minute after two bookable offences.
Arsenal piled on the pressure and finally got their equaliser when Theo Walcott latched onto a Oliver Giroud knockdown.
It seemed as though Leicester would hold out for a brilliant draw with a combination of poor finishing, fantastic defending and some heroic goalkeeping from Kasper Schmeichel.
But in the 95th minute, Welbeck rose highest to glance Ozil’s free-kick into the net giving Arsenal a massive three points.
