Wenger likes playing striker Welbeck as a striker


Arsene Wenger says that he prefers to play striker Danny Welbeck as a striker and says the striker’s best position is probably as a striker.

The England international, who was signed as a striker from Manchester United, looks set to play as a striker in the Europa League clash with Swedish side Ostersund tomorrow because fellow strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette can’t play as strikers because they are cup-tied and injured respectively.

The Gunners might have had other options to play striker but they sold three strikers last month to other sides who needed strikers.

Facing the media in Sweden ahead of tomorrow’s game, Wenger said: “[Playing as a central striker] is where I prefer him personally and it is where I believe that he has an opportunity to do well.

“He had to wait a little bit to get back in the team but that gave him time to work on his fitness and from what I have seen today he is sharper than [for] a long time. He looks very sharp.”

Arseblog News predicts Danny will start the game on the left.
