Despite the issue, Welbeck could be back in the starting XI for Tuesday's Champions League match against Galatasaray, as Wenger confirmed that he will rest Alexis Sanchez.

Welbeck's header at the 60th minute sparked Saturday's 1-0 victory at West Brom. Welbeck was considered questionable before the match; he's been dealing with a knee injury.

Welbeck played the entire match, which suggests he's 100 percent or very close to it. He has six goals since joining Arsenal, including three in Premier League play.

Welbeck will have a late fitness test to determine whether his knee is healthy enough to allow him to play Saturday against West Brom, manager Arsene Wenger said Friday.

Welbeck was held out of Wednesday's Champions League match against Dortmund because of the injury, and given that he is a bit banged up, it wouldn't be a surprise if Olivier Giroud got the start against West Brom, even with his recent return from a serious leg injury.

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.

Welbeck was shown a yellow card and held scoreless Saturday versus Sunderland.

Welbeck managed two shots on the day, although neither attempt landed on target. No matter, the Englishman continues to start at center forward for Arsenal, who now enter a tasty Gameweek 10 matchup at home versus basement dwellers Burnley.

The Englishman has thrived in his preferred central role and is player on the rise in fantasy formats.

Welbeck is fit and expected to train with Arsenal on Tuesday after leaving England's match against Estonia with a limp, reports the Daily Mail.

Fears over the striker's fitness came after he rolled his ankle in England's European qualifier victory on Sunday. It appears no serious damage was done, and should be ready to face Hull.

Welbeck scored the first hat trick of his career in Arsenal's 4-1 win over Galatasaray in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Welbeck stabbed home Alexis Sanchez's through-ball in the 22nd minute before side footing home a second on the half hour mark and adding a third in the 52nd minute from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's pass. The England marksman has now scored four times in all competitions since moving from Manchester United at the very end of the summer transfer window. Fantasy managers can count on him for goals most weeks thanks to his position as Arsenal's main striker until at least January.
