Danny Welbeck looking forward to ‘run of games’ with Arsenal
Danny Welbeck says he can't wait to feature regularly for Arsenal following his transfer from Manchester United
Danny Welbeck admits that he can’t wait to feature regularly for Arsenal following his transfer from Manchester United.
The 23-year-old striker could make his Gunners debut when the north Londoners host Manchester City at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
And Welbeck, who scored both goals in England’s 2-0 win over Switzerland on Monday, is hoping to embark on an extended run in Arsene Wenger’s first-team.
Once I get the opportunity and a run of games up front I will do my best
“It is well known I prefer to play through the middle so when I get my opportunity I just want to show what I can do,” Welbeck told ITV Sport.
“Once I get into the box and get the opportunities I have got faith in my ability.
“Before I wasn’t getting into the box because I wasn’t playing too much as a striker and I had to worry about my defensive work.
“Listen, anyone can say what they want to say but I just know once I get the opportunity and a run of games up front I will do my best.
“That’s definitely what I need. It is good for any footballer to get a run of games.
“You become more confident and play much more at ease and to get a run of games would be absolutely perfect.
“That is my first 90 minutes this season so it is just the start of things and really looking forward to it.”
