Danny Welbeck was the star of the show for Arsenal on Wednesday night after he scored a hat-trick against Galatasaray in the Gunners' 4-1 Champions League victory. 

The England international was signed from Manchester United for £16m at the end of the transfer window, and after a mixed start at the Emirates, he silenced the doubters with the first treble of his professional career. 

The internet was suitably impressed with "Dat Guy" Welbeck, and he was hailed as everything from a king to Superman by fans on social media as a mixture of old and new memes got an airing.

Of course, while it was all great viewing for Arsenal fans, there must have been a few Manchester United fans wondering if their club had made a mistake in letting their youth product join a rival.

Welbeck will look to keep the good vibes flowing when Arsenal take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
