Welbeck's winner most–tweeted EPL moment of season
Danny Welbeck's goal in the final seconds of Arsenal's 2–1 victory over Leicester City on Feb. 14 is the most tweeted about moment of the 2015-16 Premier League season so far.
In his first game back after a 10–month absence due to a knee injury, Welbeck entered as a substitute and scored the winning goal off a free kick from Mesut Ozil. The England international leaped and glanced his header past Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel.
The victory moved Arsenal within two points of league–leaders Leicester City.
Welbeck's goal surpassed another Arsenal score as the season's most–tweeted moment: Alexis Sanchez's strike to give the Gunners a 3–0 lead on Manchester United in an early October match at Emirates Stadium. That game is the most–tweeted about match of the Premier League season thus far.
