Arsenal’s Only Fit Striker is Danny Welbeck…and the Club’s Fans Are Raging About It

Arsenal‘s only fit striker for this week’s Europa League match is Danny Welbeck – and the club’s supporters are absolutely gutted to be stuck watching the Englishman.

Alexandre Lacazette – who cost £50 million last summer – was expected to start up-front against Swedish side Ostersunds in the last-32 first-leg on Thursday night, but earlier today the club revealed he’s had to undergo surgery and will be missing for around six weeks.

Given that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is cup tied for the clash, and Olivier Giroud has been sold to Chelsea, that means Arsene Wenger only has Welbeck to call upon as his senior striker – and to say Gooners are underwhelmed is a bit of an understatement:

In fairness to the fans, Welbeck has mustered just five goals from 23 appearances this season, so despite his troubles, the sooner Lacazette can get back to full fitness the better.

What do you think of the reaction to Welbeck’s new promotion to first-choice striker?
