Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was delighted for matchwinner Danny Welbeck after victory at West Bromwich Albion.
Welbeck's winner was his 11th goal of the season for club and country to leave Wenger grateful after Nacho Monreal, Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain picked up injuries.
"He is a striker who plays left, right and centrally but for me it's not important. We have so many crosses coming in you always have a chance if you stay on the flanks as well," he said.
"It was a game we controlled well until we scored the first goal but we didn't take our chances. Having given what we did on Wednesday it could have been difficult to finish the game off."
