Danny Welbeck Unable to Train at 100%, Says Arsene Wenger

Danny Welbeck has not been able to train at his 100% since suffering several major knee injuries, according to manager Arsene Wenger.


Even though the club has been struggling for form, they have not been able to utilise the presence of Welbeck in the squad. The 26-year-old has made just nine appearances in the league this season. Most of these has come as a substitute. Welbeck has played very little football for Arsenal since joining the club in a £16 million from Arsenal. Since making 34 appearances in his first campaign, the forward has played in just 26 games in the last two campaigns.

Danny Welbeck to Miss FA Cup Semi-Final against City

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the gunners are struggling with injuries coming into the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City.


This is an extremely important match for the club, as they appear to be on the verge of missing out on a top four place. In order to pacify the disgruntled supporters, Arsenal have to win the FA Cup. This would also help Wenger stay at the club with less discontent from the supporters. He has been facing a lot of calls to leave the club at the end of the campaign. City seem to have overcome their poor run of form to manage back-to-back wins in the Premier league.

Wenger Happy with Performance of This Star as Arsenal Lose 3-1 to Liverpool

Arsene Wenger may be left disappointed with his team’s 3-1 loss against Liverpool in the latest league match.


This defeat raises further questions about manager Wenger’s ability to remain at the club beyond the current campaign. There have already been calls for the Frenchman to step down as soon as possible. His current contract runs out in the summer, and Wenger has claimed that he is yet to make a decision on his future. The Frenchman has played a major role in influencing the club’s path. He has brought in several signings like Danny Welbeck who have gone on to become a success.

WELBECK AND IWOBI TO MISS WEEKEND CLASH

Arsenal duo of Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi are set to miss the game against Lincoln when both sides meet in the FA Cup quarterfinal this weekend, according to reports.


There seems to be a sickness bug in the Arsenal camp, as the players seem to have caught onto the sickness that weighed down Mesut Ozil. Coach Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Welbeck and Iwobi would not be playing as they were both affected, even before the game against German side Bayern Munich in the round of 16 of the Champions League.

Danny Welbeck to Miss FA Cup Game against Sutton Due to 3G Pitch

Danny Welbeck has been one of the disappointing stories for Arsenal in the last couple of years.


The club signed him from Manchester United with a lot of hope, but he has spent a significant chunk of the last two years on the sidelines. Welbeck has been extremely unlucky with regard to injuries, as he has suffered two major knee injuries in the space of 24 months. As a result, he has made just 19 appearances in the last two campaigns. Welbeck has yet to enter into incredible figures for a season with regard to his Arsenal career.

Arsene Wenger advises Danny Welbeck on Training Drills

Arsene Wenger has advised Danny Welbeck to go a little easy with his training drills as he doesn’t want the forward to do some sort of damage to his body again.


As per Wenger, players generally remain cautious on their return from injury and opt only for light training in the beginning, but, when he saw Welbeck train the other day, it did not seem to him that he ever had any injury at all because he was going at full throttle straightaway and while that is down to his commitment level which is very high, it’s important for him, at the same time, to avoid over-enthusiasm because he has got a bit of a history of rediscovering injuries and he would not want to rediscover another one.

Arsene Wenger Wants Patient Approach with Danny Welbeck

Arsene Wenger has reiterated that patience will be the key with regard to Danny Welbeck, as the England striker attempts to make an injury comeback once again.


A £ 16 million acquisition from Manchester United in 2014, Welbeck has featured in less than 20 appearances over the last two seasons combined. This has resulted in various doubts about his future with the club. Just as he was making a comeback from a long-term injury last season, Welbeck suffered another major problem to his knee. As a result, he is yet to feature for Arsenal this season.
