Danny Welbeck didn’t exactly do an Emmanuel Adebayor-esque sprint from one end of the pitch to the other but he also declined the muted celebration.
He celebrated his goal against former club Manchester United as though it were any other goal, as though it were an FA Cup quarter-final winner.
Or at least that’s how Arsene Wenger saw it.
He was happy that Welbeck got on the score-sheet. It was only his eight goal of what has been an underwhelming debut campaign in London.
Wenger hopes that his side can use this momentum to secure a top four place and retain the FA Cup.
The real test for Arsenal is away to Monaco in the Champions League next week. Winning at Old Trafford will give them belief that another big triumph on the road is possible.
