Arsenal receive 26-year-old fitness boost ahead of Tottenham derby – report
Arsenal should have Danny Welbeck available for the visit of Tottenham in the north London derby on Saturday, according to reports
Danny Welbeck could return to action for Arsenal’s home clash against Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday’s north London derby, according to reports.
According to the Evening Standard, Welbeck is expected to be available for the visit of their neighbours in what promises to be a hotly-contested fixture at The Emirates.
The England international has been sidelined since a 2-1 loss to Watford at Vicarage Road on 14 October due to a hamstring problem.
Welbeck missed Arsenal’s 5-2 victory over Everton at Goodison Park and the Gunners’ 2-1 win against Swansea City at the Emirates Stadium.
The former Manchester United striker watched on as his current team lost 3-1 to Premier League leaders Manchester City in their last Premier League game before the international break.
Welbeck has scored three goals and has made one assist in six appearances in the Premier League in the 2017-18 season so far.
The Gunners are 12 points behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side after 11 games to rule out a title bid in the current campaign.
Arsenal missed out on a Champions League spot last term after finishing behind Liverpool in fifth place in the 2016-17 season.
The north London side signed Welbeck in a £16m deal from Manchester United in the 2014 summer transfer window.
