Danny Welbeck is out for at least another three weeks

Published 4 Comments

Arsene Wenger has revealed Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck is still three weeks away from a return to action.

Welbeck has been out with a knee injury since April and has missed all of the Gunners pre-season preparations, however reports claimed he could be in line for a return against Crystal Palace.

But Wenger has now ended all possibility of a return for the England striker, admitting he is still weeks off a return to the first team.

Speaking ahead of his sides trip to Crystal Palace, as per the Mirror, he said: "Welbeck is not close because he has not started full training so I would say at least 3 weeks from today."


Welbeck failed to live up to his self confessed reputation as a 'finisher' during his first season at the Emirates, and will be under pressure to increase his goalscoring tally once his season gets underway.

The former Manchester United mans eight goals in 34 games does point to someone with a natural eye for goal, and Arsenal will be wanting to see a return on the £16 million they gave the Red Devils last summer.

Admittedly Welbeck played a fair amount of games on the flanks following the return of Olivier Giroud, but in the strikers absence he failed to find the back of the net on a regular basis.

The 24-year-old offers more to the team than just goalscoring, his work-rate at both ends of the pitch is incredible and his ability to play in a number of positions is invaluable to a club, however the be all and end all for a striker is goals, an area Welbeck fell short in last season.
