Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher comments on Danny Welbeck’s goal for Arsenal against Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-final tie.

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck has scored against his former Manchester United for the first time in his career.

The England international was on the books of United until the summer of 2014, when he moved to their Premier League rivals Arsenal.

The Red Devils manager, Louis van Gaal, later claimed that he did not need Welbeck as he did not have the quality to start regularly for his team, according to The Telegraph.

Against United in the ongoing FA Cup quarter-final tie at Old Trafford, the 24-year-old started and scored.

Welbeck found the target just past hour mark when he shot home from close range past Spain international goalkeeper David de Gea.

This is the first time that the Englishman has played at Old Trafford since leaving United in the summer, but he did not refrain from celebrating.

While many United fans may not be pleased with that, Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher gave his firm backing to Welbeck.
