Jamie Carragher: This is what Danny Welbeck needs to show for Arsenal v Chelsea in Premier League

Danny Welbeck - Kitchee vs Man Utd Asia Tour

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher hails Danny Welbeck ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League clash against Chelsea on Sunday.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has been singing the praises of Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck.

The England international announced himself on the world stage in midweek when he scored a truly brilliant hat-trick against Galatasaray at the Emirates Stadium in North London.

It was the 23-year-old's first ever senior hat-trick and saw the Gunners defeat their Turkish rivals 4-1 in the Champions League.

Welbeck will be looking for a repeat of that performance on Sunday, when Arsenal take on Chelsea in the Premier League.

Chelsea are a much better team than Galatasaray and have two of the best defenders in the league in John Terry and Gary Cahill.

But if Welbeck can star at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, then he will be ‘moving in the right direction’, according to Carragher.

‘He (Welbeck) has power and pace, a relentless work-rate and he is the type of forward who will never give a defender a moment’s rest’, the former England international wrote in the Daily Mail.

‘He will be at Terry and Cahill from the start. What he needs to show now, though, is that he has composure in front of goal. Wednesday night was a positive step.

‘His finishing was impressive but holding your nerve when Terry and Cahill are trying to hunt you down is different. Another big performance, though, and Welbeck will be moving in the right direction’.

Welbeck will indeed find it tough against Chelsea, especially at the Bridge. However, the former Manchester United striker will head into the London derby high on confidence and could damage the Blues.
