Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Danny Welbeck performance

Danny Welbeck scores the first goal for Arsenal

The Arsenal man isn't popular with the club's fanbase at the moment.

Arsenal fans aren't happy with Danny Welbeck.

The 26-year-old started up front in Arsenal's 2-0 win over Sydney FC in Australia as Arsene Wenger's side got their pre-season preparations off to a good start.

But the England international struggled to impress and missed a second-half penalty to compound a disappointing day for him.

In contrast, £52 million man Alexandre Lacazette replaced him on 68 minutes and doubled the lead shortly after by tapping home an Alex Iwobi pass, after Per Mertesacker had fired the Gunners ahead on just four minutes.

Indeed, it was a testing affair for Welbeck and quite a lot of fans of the North London club would rather see him sold.

Welbeck won't be sold for missing a penalty, but he might well still leave Arsenal this summer.

Lacazette's signing means he has very little chance of playing up front next season, while Thomas Lemar's prospective arrival means he could also struggle for regular football in a wide role.

He has only managed 10 goals in 52 Premier League outings for Wenger's side following his arrival from Manchester United in 2014.
