Arsene Wenger defends Arsenal star after 'fat' accusations

Arsene Wenger defends Arsenal star after 'fat' accusations

"The best way to get people on your side is to perform", Wenger said.

Before the game, eyebrows were raised at the selection of Danny Welbeck over Alexis Sanchez.

For all Arsenal's dominance, however, the game arguably hinged on one crucial moment when, shortly after halftime, Jermain Defoe hit the post just minutes before Arsenal killed the game off with their third goal.

Arsenal recovered from back-to-back Premier League defeats with a 3-0 win over Bournemouth at the Emirates.

"There's always going to be competition, not just with the players here but players worldwide". It's fair to argue that he is the most clinical finisher in England. It's not that he can't finish, or that he lacks the ability: it's about doing it consistently.

The only previous occasions the former Manchester United forward has scored more than a solitary goal in an Arsenal shirt were in the Champions League - with an October 2014 hat trick against Galatasaray - and an FA Cup double against Southampton in January.

A second goal seemed inevitable and record signing Lacazette duly obliged, firing into the top corner after neat build-up play involving Ozil and Welbeck. He's had two major injuries that have seen him miss 10 months and eight months respectively, and there should be no doubt over how disruptive they've been for him.

The post states that the Gainesville Police Department has "nothing" on Officers Raulerson, Craig, Gloeckner and Hughes. The department is asking people not call 9-1-1 and request the three "hot cops" be the ones to respond to an incident.

"Let's not forget that he was out for a long time", Wenger said of Welbeck. "He's a team player, Danny Welbeck, and that's why coaches love him".

I don't know. I had a chat with him after the game and he didn't look unhappy. I liked his second goal today, because it's really clean finishing for any goalscorer.

It's why the performance, and what he produced against Bournemouth, will give Wenger a nice headache over the coming weeks.

"Of course, he has all the physical qualities to play at that level.

He will win the fans back, and win them back very quickly".

Francis Coquelin limped off towards the end of the game and Wenger said that Jack Wilshere, who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth and has an uncertain Arsenal future, could benefit from the Frenchman's absence. A poor performance from start to finish.
