Arsenal returned to winning ways on Saturday with a comfortable 3-0 win vs Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium.
After losing to Stoke and Liverpool before the international break, the pressure was on both the players and Arsene Wenger heading into this one but fans got the reaction they were looking for with a convincing performance.
New signing Alexandre Lacazette was back on the scoresheet with his second goal of the season but the day’s plaudits went to Danny Welbeck who not only netted a brace but also set up Lacazette for his effort too.
Welbeck has had a difficult couple of seasons at Arsenal but with three goals in five matches already at the start of this campaign, it’s looking like he’s turned a corner and can be a reliable presence in the Gunners’ attack once again.
Supporters were absolutely delighted with his contribution and took to Twitter to share their joy…
Welbeck just replaced Ox's seasonal contribution in 50 minutes, no wonder we didn't sign a replacement

My boy scored 2 and assisted 1. That's 3 goals and 2 assists so far this season. I'm sorry he didn't cost £75M #Welbeast2017.
