Danny Welbeck credits England form with move to Arsenal from Man Utd.



Danny Welbeck believes signing for Arsenal has helped him to improve his international form for England.

Welbeck, 24, scored England's second goal in Friday's 4-0 Euro 2016 qualifying win against Lithuania to take his tally for his nation up to 14, while his display led to him being named man of the match.

The forward also leads the qualifying scoring charts with six goals, and he puts this all down to playing more regularly since making the move from Manchester United to Arsenal last summer.

"When you are playing regularly, you feel a lot sharper on the pitch", he told the Evening Standard.

"Once you play regularly, it just becomes second nature to do things on the pitch. I feel match-sharp and that is important."

England's victory on Friday means they have now won all five of their qualifying games and sit top of Group E, six points clear of Slovenia and Switzerland.

"As a team, England are progressing well. We are on a good run and we just want to keep it going. As a whole squad, we are excited whenever the games come up," Welbeck is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.

"We've got great options. And it is not just the attacking players, but it is all over the pitch. With the way we are playing at the moment, if you get a chance you want to take it."

Welbeck has been ruled out of England's friendly in Italy on Tuesday after suffering a knee injury against Lithuania.
