Arsenal FC: Welbeck Welcomes Healthy Competition At The Emirates
By Mark Wayne Eubank | September 5, 2014 4:43 PM EST
Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck indicated that he is prepared to slug it out, so to speak, with his teammates for a starting spot in the Gunners' attacking-line.
“There is definitely competition and I think once you come to a big club, there is always going to be competition.” - Danny Welbeck
The England international was surprisingly released by Manchester United on deadline day, as Louis van Gaal is apparently conducting a squad overhaul to successfully implement his system.
"There is definitely competition and I think once you come to a big club, there is always going to be competition," said the 23-year-old, who came through the youth ranks at Old Trafford.
"Unfortunately there are a couple of injuries at the moment but I think once everyone is fighting fit, everybody will want to be on the pitch scoring goals and that's healthy competition for the squad."
The north Londoners will be facing a tough Manchester City side on Saturday, who are looking to bounce back from an upset 1-0 loss to Stoke City, and it remains to be seen whether Welbeck will get the starting nod over Yaya Sanogo or Lukas Podolski.
'I just want them (Arsenal fans) to know that I will give 100% in every single game. I play with my heart on my sleeve and I am always going to give my best," he added.
"I will try to give them so many happy days in the coming future."
