LONDON (SportingAlert.com) — Forward Danny Welbeck is expected to be fit for Arsenal fixture with Hull City in Saturday’s English Premier League clash at Emirates Stadium.
Welbeck picked up an ankle injury on international duty with England during the Euro 2016 qualifying game against Estonia, which Roy Hodgson’s side won 1-0.
The striker was seen as doubtful for the clash, but reports are now saying that the former Manchester United speedster will be fit to start.
Welbeck has scored four goals so far for Arsenal, including a hat-trick in the Champions League against Galatasaray, since his deadline day transfer move from Old Trafford.
Arsenal is already without French strikers Olivier Giroud, who also has an ankle injury and will be out for another two months and Yaya Sanogo, who has a hamstring problem.
There is good news though for Gunners fans, as England winger Theo Walcott returned to full training on Monday and he could be available for this Arsenal fixture with an improving Hull City side.
Germany forward Serge Gnabry has also linked back up with his teammates in full training at London Colney this week and will be available if needed this weekend.
Arsenal sits eighth in the English Premier League standings with 10pts from seven games and Arsene Wenger’s side heads into Saturday’s game looking to bounce back from a 2-0 defeat to leaders Chelsea in the last outing.
