4 Key Passes, 88% Accuracy, but Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck found wanting in key area v Sunderland in Premier League

Danny Welbeck

Danny Welbeck was far from his best for Arsenal against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League on Saturday.

Danny Welbeck has had his moments at Arsenal since joining the Gunners from Manchester United on transfer deadline day, but he has been largely frustrating.

Despite scoring both in the Premier League and the Champions League for the North London outfit, the 23-year-old striker has often been underwhelming in his performances.

That streak continued on Saturday, as the England international failed to score in Arsenal’s 2-0 away victory over Sunderland in the Premier League.

As the stats above show, Welbeck had an average game on a personal level at the Stadium of Light.

The Englishman had just two shots all afternoon and neither of them was on target. However, Welbeck gave four key passes, won the one dribble he tried and had a pass accuracy of 88%.

As in other games, Welbeck did give his all against Sunderland, but he failed to provide the outlet in the first half and was perhaps too eager to link up instead of making the right runs.

Welbeck is doing his best to get involved in matches and is working hard, but he just cannot get the goals at the moment.
