Welbeck belief

The short-term future of Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck might not be as bleak as fans believe, with the club of the opinion that he could return to action before the end of the year.

England manager Roy Hodgson sparked concerns earlier this week when he said the striker could be out for six months after undergoing knee surgery, but it’s believed he was talking about the amount of time it will be before Welbeck is ready for international duty again, not football altogether.

The Sun claim the Gunners are confident the former Manchester United man’s issues have been addressed - just as well considering the club’s early goalscoring form.

more injury news

In other team news both Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker are expected to return to Arsene Wenger’s line-up in time for Saturday’s home clash against Stoke City, as per reports.

Koscielny has been struggling with a back problem, whilst Mertesacker had a virus, though both are back in full training and apparently available for selection.

Parlour on Martial

Moving on, and Ray Parlour has made a comment sure to infuriate Manchester United fans, suggesting that Anthony Martial might flop at Old Trafford.

The ex-Gunner claimed that because the France striker was bought for an ‘unbelievable amount’ there was a danger of him being a miss rather than a hit.
