The 23-year-old striker did not quite take his opportunity for the Gunners against Man United...

Danny Welbeck did not quite prove a point against his former club on Saturday afternoon.

The Arsenal striker, who was sold for £16 million in August, had the chance to show Manchester United what they were missing out on by allowing him to leave Old Trafford.

Instead, however, the sum of Welbeck's Arsenal performance was a number of missed chances and one very cringeworthy backheel.

After the game, an understandably downbeat Arsene Wenger told BBC Sport

"It's a game that we dominated for 80 per cent of the time and we haven't dominated a game like that against Manchester United for a long time.

"At the end of the day we were not efficient enough in the final third, or defensively, and we made a mistake at the back which they took advantage of.

"Once we were 1-0 down we had possession in the final third that they had to defend. We missed a few opportunities in the second half, even in the final 20 minutes."

Patience with the Gunners boss seems to be wearing a little thin, though, and, perhaps for the first time, the same is starting to apply for Welbeck. Here's how some Arsenal fans saw the 23-year-old's performance against Manchester United on Twitter...
