Danny Welbeck could be back in the frame when Arsenal host Swansea City next week.

The 24-year-old missed Arsenal’s trip to Hull City on Monday as the Gunners secured a 3-1 win which effectively clinched a spot in the Premier League top four this season.

Welbeck’s absence was the only concern on a day where Arsene Wenger managed to name a strong bench which featured a returning Jack Wilshere.

But the Arsenal boss has moved to dismiss any fears over Welbeck missing the rest of 2014/15 campaign after revealing that the striker’s injury will not be keeping him out for weeks.
