Danny Welbeck’s brace against Brentford in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night took his goal tally to four for the season so far, making him Arsenal’s joint top-goalscorer with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The England international’s current contract with the Gunners expires at the end of this season, but if he can maintain his fitness and his current form then Unai Emery will be loathe to let the 27-year-old leave, especially as a free agent.
The Gunners are well-stocked for attackers, but Welbeck’s recent performances have certainly given Emery something of a selection dilemma heading into this weekend’s clash with Watford at the Emirates Stadium.
However, whilst the former Manchester United man’s form is strong, both Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are also currently amongst the goals and are both too vital to Arsenal’s attacking play to lose their places in the starting XI.
What do you think, Arsenal fans? Has Welbeck done enough to earn a start on Saturday?
