Danny Welbeck at the double as Arsenal beat Bournemouth

Danny Welbeck at the double as Arsenal beat Bournemouth”

Arsene Wenger couldn't single out a bad performance from his Arsenal players following their 3-0 win over Bournemouth.

The Chilean came off the bench for a 15 minute cameo against Bournemouth today, making his first appearance since overseeing his move to desired Manchester City move break down on deadline day.

"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". The record signing fired a precise right-footed curler into the net that gave Begovic no chance as the former Lyon man showed great technique and composure.

Wenger, however, provided better news regarding Jack Wilshere after revealing that the England global is closing in on a return to action.

After defeats against Stoke City and Liverpool, Arsenal started brightly and led inside six minutes when Welbeck headed in, before Alexandre Lacazette fired home a superb second goal after neat link-up play with the England forward.

Subs: Francis Coquelin (for Ramsey, 67): 6, Olivier Giroud (for Lacazette, 75): 6, Alexis Sanchez (for Welbeck, 75): 6.

"Overall I believe that we had a committed, disciplined and offensively very good performance". With one of each already for Arsenal, fans will hope he's well on his way to becoming a more well-rounded striker at the Emirates Stadium. Despite the Hitchin player's insistence he is fit and raring to go - most on social media - the long-serving Frenchman declined to include him in the squad.

Danny Welbeck has finally scored a couple of times in an English Premier League match for Arsenal. He's a guy who has a huge physical potential.

"I liked his second goal today because it was the clean finish of a goal-scorer", Wenger said.

What they saidArsenal manager Arsene Wenger (on Danny Welbeck): "He gets stronger and stronger". Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe: "It is very, very disappointing from our perspective".
