Danny Welbeck feeling "positive" ahead of injury return 

Danny Welbeck has admitted that he is desperate to get back out on the field following a lengthy injury layoff.

The England international damaged his knee at the back end of last season and has not featured for the Gunners since.

After going under the knife in September, Welbeck is now expected to return early in the new year to provide Arsenal with another option in attack.

Speaking to the club's official website about his frustrations over the past seven months or so, he said:

"It is difficult. It is my first injury that has kept me out for so long. I had my operation and once that is sorted you can be out for a few more months.

"For the first month, in a leg brace, not being able to do anything, on a machine six hours a day, it was very difficult. But you have to try and see the positives. Luckily I had my family around me, my friends came down to London and I had my brothers. It was good to have people around me and have that support.

"You wake up in the morning and know you have double sessions in the gym it is hard but you have to see the positive side and I have learnt a lot more being injured on how to look after your body and prevent injuries. I have to see the positive side and hopefully when I come back, I will be flying."

Welbeck scored eight goals in 34 appearances for the Gunners during his maiden campaign at the Emirates Stadium.
