Ian Wright reacts on Twitter to Arsenal win, jokes about Danny Welbeck

Danny Welbeck

The Gunners icon is excited about the north London derby...

Ian Wright was understandably excited after Arsenal's last-gasp 2-1 win over Leicester City on Sunday afternoon.

And he took to Twitter to joke about Danny Welbeck following his late winner.

The result has also prompted excitement from Wright when it comes to the Gunners' upcoming north Lonon derby.

Arsenal travel to White Hart Lane in March, having drawn 1-1 in the reverse fixture at the Emirates Stadium.

The north London side are now many people's favourites to win the Premier League title, although their cross-city rivals are also well fancied, while Leicester City - we shouldn't forget - are still two points clear at the top of the league table.

Welbeck's return was the stuff of fairytales and Arsenal fans will no doubt hope he can prove pivotal in the title race.

Theo Walcott also netted - thanks to an Olivier Giroud assist - on Sunday afternoon, suggesting there could be hope for all of Arsene Wenger's forwards heading into their all-important run-in.
