  • Danny Welbeck's double eases Arsenal angst to see off feeble Bournemouth

However it was not all positive for the Gunners as Francis Coquelin went off injured mid-way through the second half.

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck has said that manager Arsene Wenger has "a good headache" in terms of his options up front. "You have to be prepared and execute the gameplan".

"Some players will come in of course, because many players played twice for the national team, and then again today".

After disappointing defeats at against Stoke and Liverpool, Arsenal fans have scapegoated Mesut Ozil for his poor form returning to the Premier League.

DANNY WELBECK believes he is benefiting from a full pre-season after scoring twice in Arsenal's comfortable 3-0 win over Bournemouth.

One is that we have somehow turned Chelsea from being a bogey club that we could not beat home or away for about a decade, into a club that we actually seem to thrive against.

Sánchez had been invited onto the field before the game to receive his Supporters' Player of the Season trophy for his efforts last time out. "He's not far from that". He is focused, he told us he is focused on the Premier Leagueand Europa League. Welbeck almost had the hat-trick only for his chip to drift wide while Coquelin and another substitute, Olivier Giroud, went close.

Welbeck has struggled with serious injuries in the past two seasons and was limited to just 15 league starts since the beginning of the 2015-16 campaign.

Bournemouth were horribly loose and their travails were summed up in the 37th minute when Begovic took a heavy touch following Tyrone Mings' back pass and was closed down by Welbeck.

The 28-year-old has refused to sign a contract extension with the north London club despite allowing his current deal to enter into its final 12 months.

Bournemouth remain pointless after four games of the new season.

"Jack is getting stronger and stronger", Wenger said. "The fact that Francis is out now gives him a chance as well", Wenger said.
