Danny Welbeck is a cult figure in the Premier League, and even when the forward manages to score, he still gets trolled on social media – and after putting Arsenal 2-1 up against struggling Southampton, the same thing happened.
Welbeck has enjoyed somewhat of a revival of late, being the main man in the Europa League when Alexandre Lacazette was injured and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was unable to play, and it seems that the player is now ready to see Arsenal through to the end of the season – and is actually fit to do so as well.
Against the Saints, he managed to get a goal and assist, and was trolled for trying to score a bicycle kick in the same week as Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimvoic – and did not get quite the same result.
Even Arsenal fans were mocking their own player, and noted that if Welbeck scores against you, it certainly is curtains when it comes to the Premier League, and Mark Hughes’ side are looking at life in the Championship now.

Premier League rules state “When Danny Welbeck scores against you, you are AUTOMATICALLY relegated.” Farewell Southampton

I can’t believe Welbeck scored a goal he tried to score.

Southampton is so bad that Welbeck scored such a goal. From an Iwobi assist. They’re getting relegated.

I’m fully expecting to see a UFO

Danny Welbeck and Shane Long both scoring in the same game. Light the beacons of Gondor.

That corpse known as Welbeck finally scored a goal, or did something that wasn’t fall down or give the ball away. Get in. 2-1 The Arsenal.
