Welbeck Suffers Thigh Injury
Tuesday, Dec. 30
Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck missed the club's trip to Southampton in the Premier League after picking up a thigh injury.
The north London club provided information on the former Manchester United man's woes:
Welbeck has worked hard for the Gunners this season, as many would have expected after his industrious beginning to professional life with the Red Devils. Just like Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes, Arsene Wenger relies on the Englishman to fulfill a number of roles in the Arsenal setup.
He can often be seen switching between a traditional striker's role and stint on the left-wing. Although the latter task frustrated him at Old Trafford, Welbeck's positional discipline often makes him extremely useful on the flank.
The 24-year-old isn't a prolific goalscorer when starting up top—scoring four in 16 Premier League games this season, per WhoScored.com—but possesses the determination and energy to significantly improve Arsenal's output.
Wenger loses an injection of pace without Welbeck in the team and will be hoping to have his responsible star back soon.
