Sunflower or weed!?

Hi all. I'm a fairly amateur and suck-it-and-see kinda gardener and had planted sunflowers last year and this year have found these in some of my containers and wondered if they are weeds or if they look like little sunflowers. Thanks for any help.

    My sunflower seedlings have rounder and slightly darker leaves than those - do you have any ash trees around?  Those look remarkably like the ash tree seedlings that are springing up all over my garden - but then lots of seedlings look like that until they get their proper leaves - you'll have to wait and see image
