Cross: Welbeck is a different player at Arsenal through the middle

first_imgJohn Cross reflects on Arsenal’s impressive 4-1 victory over Galatasaray in the Champions League on Wednesday night.Danny Welbeck was described as ‘electric’ by Arsene Wenger after hitting a hat-trick and Cross joined in the praise for a player deemed not good enough for Manchester United by Louis van Gaal.Speaking on the Sports Bar, the Daily Mirror journalist said: “He has been crying out for the chance to play week in, week out. He is a different player through the middle, because that pace of his is so good, so strong, he will always get into scoring positions.“As a centre-forward, he has showed for England what a good finisher he can be. And some of his finishing against Galatasaray was outstanding.“He is also a team player, a good link player. With an array of players in midfield, Arsenal will always need that. A finisher isn’t just enough, and Welbeck is a good team player as well.”last_img
