The whole world was left in awe (and shock) as £16million summer signing Danny Welbeck scored a hat-trick for his new club Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League against Galatasaray.
Twitter exploded in honour of the former Man United star’s performance, with many are already dubbing him as the next Thierry Henry.
However, not too long ago, another player became the second only Gunner to score a Champions League hat-trick, with big things also being expected from the then young Arsenal hitman.
Was it Theo Walcott perhaps? A young Carlos Vela?
Nope it was Nicklas Bendtner… now known in the sarcastic meme community as ‘Lord Bendtner’.
So which path will Welbeck follow? One which leads him to become one of the greatest ever players in the Premier League? Or the other that makes him an online legend from his consistent failures?
Up to you Danny boy!
