Welbeck could miss Saturday's Premier League match against Manchester United because of a hamstring injury, ESPN FC reports.

Welbeck reportedly will face a late fitness test in order to face his old club. Olivier Giroud is expected back from his broken fibula, though it is doubtful he is fit enough to play all 90 minutes in Welbeck's place.
