Danny Welbeck eager to add "special trophy" to his CV


Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck has urged his team-mates to win the FA Cup as it is one of the game's most special trophies.

The 24-year-old went close to win everything there was to win during his spell with Manchester United with the FA Cup the only trophy he never managed to lift.

And ahead of Sunday's home game against Middlesbrough, the Englishman says the Gunners are determined to defend their status as FA Cup holders.

"Middlesbrough have got nothing to lose but they also know that they're going to be up against a good side," Welbeck told the club's official website.

"I'm sure that once we're going into the game, we'll be prepared very well. We'll know about their team, they'll know a lot about us as well so it should be a good occasion.

"We'd like to play our game but obviously every single team's got their strengths and weaknesses so we'll be looking into that.

"We'll analyse their team and know where we can maybe make the difference on the day.

"It's a special trophy to win and I've not had the joy of winning it.

"It's something that I really want to do. It's great to have that on your CV and you just want to keep on winning because once you get into the habit, it's good to keep going.

"It's always meant a lot.

"Growing up as a kid we always knew the FA Cup was such a historic competition and it's up to us to keep that going. I'm sure it will and it will live on forever."
