Wenger tells Sanchez to counter jeers on pitch

Wenger tells Sanchez to counter jeers on pitch

Arsenal's nerves were settled by a goal within six minutes, the recalled Sead Kolasinac making the difference with an incisive run and cross on the left to tee up Welbeck for a close-range header. He scored twice, was unlucky not to bag a hat trick with a handsome run and chip that went just wide and provided an assist for Alexandre Lacazette.

"Everyone would love to get the opportunity to play here so there's always competition and I think that makes it better for you as a player".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Danny Welbeck is ready to prove his doubters wrong after the forward's two-goal performance against Bournemouth on Saturday.

The only previous occasions the former Manchester United forward has scored more than a solitary goal in an Arsenal shirt were in the Champions League - with an October 2014 hat trick against Galatasaray - and an FA Cup double against Southampton in January. He's had two major injuries that have seen him miss 10 months and eight months respectively, and there should be no doubt over how disruptive they've been for him. "I liked his second goal today, it's really the clean finishing of a goal scorer".

Wenger said: "Yes, I spoke to him".

Team to play Arsenal: Begovic, Cook, Ake, Daniels, Smith, Arter, Mings, Gosling, Fraser, King, Defoe.

Welbeck had been criticised for missing a number of chances at Stoke and Liverpool in Arsenal's previous two losses, but Wenger said it is clear the England global is getting his confidence back after two seasons largely ruined by injuries.

The second goal duly followed as Ozil's raking pass was touched on from Lacazette to Welbeck, who instantly gave it back for the Frenchman to finish well from the edge of the box. There would be room for all of them if Arsenal reverted to a back four, with Ozil dropping back into a central attacking midfield role, but it seems that Wenger is inclined to stick with the three-at-the-back system he implemented towards the end of last season. Many key players are likely to be rested for next Sunday's mammoth league clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. A poor performance from start to finish.
