Welbeck, who joined the club on deadline day from Manchester United, said: "It's a pleasure to play with Alexis. He keeps going and they are [the attributes of] somebody I like to play alongside.
"It's the same with all the other players in the team. I'm really getting to know the players much better now and hopefully now we can go on a nice run of winning games."
