Wenger on when Danny Welbeck will play his first game

Arsene Wenger delivered the latest team news ahead of the new day Premier League match against Crystal Palace and he revealed that Danny Welbeck is fit enough to start in any game.

Injuries to key players have been a problem for Arsenal yet again this season, but Wenger has been handed some good news on that front in recent weeks with the return to fitness of Danny Welbeck who had been sidelined by a knee injury for more than half a year.

But according to the Arsenal manager, the 26-year-old might not be involved in this weekend’s fixture despite being in “sharp” condition.

“He’s fit, he’s sharp,” Wenger said at his pre-match press conference on Friday morning.

“Will I involve him in the short-term or not, or will I play him first in a game with the under-23s? I have not decided yet, but in training he looks quite good.”
