Danny Welbeck has revealed that his improved international form is due to his move from Manchester United to Arsenal in the summer.

The Three Lions striker is the top scorer in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, and scored yet again when England beat Lithuania 4-0 on Friday at Wembley Stadium.

Welbeck, who spent his entire career at United, moved to the Emirates Stadium in the summer, after Louis van Gaal deemed him surplus to requirements.

He was a periphery figure at United and struggled to get regular game time and this prompted him to move to the capital with Arsene Wenger's team.

Since his arrival in north London, the 24-year-old striker has become a key part of the Gunners squad and has overtaken Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamerlain as a preferred starter in the right-wing role.

The Frenchman has praised the player's versatility, as he can operate as a wide player or as an orthodox number nine, and the manager confirmed that it was one of the main reasons for him buying Welbeck from United on transfer deadline day.

The England international striker has now admitted that his improved international form is due to him playing on a regular basis for Arsenal, something he struggled to do during his time with United.

"When you are playing regularly, you feel a lot sharper on the pitch. Once you play regularly, it just becomes second nature to do things on the pitch. I feel match-sharp and that is important," Welbeck said, as quoted by the Mirror.

Meanwhile, the Arsenal striker is keen for England to maintain their winning momentum after their 4-0 win over Lithuania took them one step closer to qualifying for Euro 2016 in France.

"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," the Gunners forward added.
