Watford striker Danny Welbeck goes down injured after just 55 SECONDS against Tottenham

Watford forward Danny Welbeck strengthened his injury-prone reputation after he was forced to come off against Tottenham just 55 seconds into the game.

The former Arsenal and Manchester United star has struggled with fitness issues for a majority of his career but a fresh start at Vicarage Road gave him hope of putting those problems behind him for good.

But any optimism Welbeck had turned over a new leaf were immediately quashed less than a minute after kick off when he went down with no one around him at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. He was replaced by Gerard Deulofeu after briefly being attended to by medics.

Welbeck missed much of the 2018/19 season for Arsenal, with an ankle injury ruling him out for six months, and its possible the problem has now resurfaced.

The 28-year-old has made three starts for the Hornets this season after signing on a free transfer from the Gunners this summer.

It had been hoped he might be able to chip in with goals to boost Watford’s charge to stave off relegation, but he is now set for a spell on the sidelines. 

And football fans have been quick to poke fun at Welbeck given his history with injuries, with some urging him to retire.

One user pointed how Welbeck sustained his injury without any contact from an opposition player, while another said he should consider ‘calling time on his career’.
