Cape Town - Following his high profile move from Manchester United last summer, Danny Welbeck says adapting to life at Arsenal has made him a better all-round player.

The England international has had an encouraging first season at the club, scoring eight goals and claiming eight assists in all competitions.

He has been pleased with his contribution so far and credits his team-mates for their role in helping him to settle so quickly.

“It’s been transitional for me, moving down to London, playing in a new system for a new manager and a new team, getting used to new things around the club,” Welbeck told Arsenal Player.

“I’m happy about the move to Arsenal and I think things will go well for me in the future. It’s a good group of lads and everyone’s been class with me since the day I arrived.

“It’s not just my team-mates, it’s the staff around the training ground, at the stadium - everyone’s made me feel welcome. The fans have been brilliant as well so they’ve made it very easy for me.

“It’s not just one thing [that has improved]. My all-round game, getting used to the different systems and different players means you learn a lot more, gather more experience and you just develop naturally.”

Welbeck has scored a number of vital goals this season, but his favourite moment remains his hat-trick against Galatasaray in the Champions League.

“There have been a few highlights really,” he said.

“Performance-wise, I’ve had a few good ones and it’s difficult to pick one.

“Scoring my first professional hat-trick was a special moment for me. I want to improve, to keep getting better as a person and a player down here.”
