Arsenal move has unleashed the beast in Welbeck

LONDON (Reuters) – Danny Welbeck’s move from Manchester United’s bench to the fulcrum of Arsenal’s attack may have unleashed the beast in a player whose array of natural attributes have taken time to blend into a complete striker.

Fuelled with the confidence gained from knowing he will be one of the first names on Arsene Wenger’s team sheet and playing in his preferred central role instead of on the flank at Old Trafford, Welbeck is beginning to look like the real deal.

LONDON (Reuters) – Red flares rained down on The Emirates pitch as Arsenal thumped Galatasaray in the Champions League on Wednesday but equally worrying for the Gunners was yet another red card shown to one of their players.

Arsenal demolish Galatasaray with Welbeck treble

LONDON (Reuters) – Arsenal ignited their Champions League campaign with a 4-1 thrashing of a feeble Galatasaray side on Wednesday with Danny Welbeck grabbing a hat-trick in a largely one-sided Group D clash in north London.

Galatasaray had never won in nine previous visits to England, and once Welbeck had punished them twice in the first half-hour their resistance crumbled, with Alexis Sanchez ending the match as a contest with Arsenal’s third goal before half-time.
