Arsenal legend Ian Wright winds up United fans on Twitter

Arsenal legened Ian Wright has taken to Twitter to wind up Manchester United supporters.

As if seeing Danny Welbeck score a Champions League hat-trick for Arsenal was not frustrating enough for Manchester United supporters, Gunners legend Ian Wright has decided to antagonise the fan-base more. 

Wright was criticised by United fans on social media site Twitter after he posted to celebrate Welbeck's hat-trick against Galatasaray and he reacted to the stick. 

He first questioned why he shouldn't be allowed to cheer on an Arsenal player who is doing well, before asking whether United finished seventh last season in tribute to Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, who famously wore that number shirt at Old Trafford.

United's struggles were well documented last year, but they are aiming to improve on that finish this year. 

It looks set to be a tight contest between the two sides as to who finishes above each-other, but it may be Welbeck who can prove the difference between the two sides after United allowed him to leave on deadline day.

Although the Red Devils have some high-profile talent up-front many United fans wanted them to keep a player who has been the brightest prospect to come through the youth-system in many years and were disappointed when he left.

Louis Van Gaal's team's loss has certainly been Arsenal's gain, though, and the hope is that Welbeck can build on his first senior hat-trick.

He took all three goals with great aplomb and it was evidence of the reason why Arsene Wenger decided to part with £16 million to secure the front-man over the summer.

Welbeck has started his Arsenal career with four goals in his first five games and he will now be hoping to score against Chelsea at the weekend to continue his fine run of form.
