Revealed: Arsenal fans want Welbeck to start up front vs Man United

It’s been a tough few months to be an Arsenal fan, watching their team plummet out of the Champions League and the top four race with a spate of underwhelming performances both in Europe and domestically, leading to fresh calls for Arsene Wenger to finally step down.

The Gunners were nothing short of humiliated in the north London derby last weekend, losing 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur in a game that could have seen Mauricio Pochettino’s side easily bag three or four more, and will now have to pick themselves up for an equally important Premier League clash with Manchester United on Sunday.

Considering how inconsistent his side have been, and considering how poorly they performed against Spurs, Wenger has some huge decisions to make ahead of the game at the Emirates Stadium, not least including who should start up front – with Olivier Giroud failing to deliver there at White Hart Lane.

The Arsenal boss has a wealth of options to choose from, so we asked Gunners fans earlier this week who they’d pick to lead the line. And according to the results of our recent poll, most would like to see Danny Welbeck given the nod – perhaps because the England international will naturally want to produce his best form against his former club.

Will Wenger agree with the Arsenal faithful? We’ll have to wait and see.
