Arsene Wenger says that Danny Welbeck’s two goals against Bournemouth yesterday will help him grow in confidence as a finisher, and says that his second showed that he has the potential to become a real goalscorer for this Arsenal side.
There have been question marks over the England man’s composure in front of goal, and he can look clumsy at times, but he now has three goals this season and the manager is backing him to improve as this campaign goes on.
|He gets stronger and stronger,” said Wenger after the 3-0 win. Let’s not forget that he was out for a long time.
“He gets stronger and stronger. He’s a team player, Danny Welbeck, and that’s why coaches love him. He’s a guy who has a huge physical potential.
“People are not convinced that he is a great finisher, but these kinds of goals will help him become more relaxed in front of goal.
“I liked his second goal today because it was the clean finish of a goalscorer.”
Let’s hope he can keep it up, because the more clinical we are in front of goal, the more we can offset our defensive frailties.
