"He is still a bit short physically".

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck has said that manager Arsene Wenger has "a good headache" in terms of his options up front.

Defending In Numbers is a new Deezer Originals football podcast, created by Squawka.

While the memes make light of the situation, Coquelin is unlikely to be laughing.

Mesut Ozil completed 78 per cent of his attempted passes against Bournemouth. It was a sharp piece of movement from the Arsenal forward inside the area and he will argue that he made his own luck when he rose to meet Sead Kolasinac's inviting centre. I got into that position and I didn't think twice about it'.

"We want to do well in Europe and we will put out a team that can win the game on Thursday".

The second period was less than three minutes old when Bournemouth's Jermain Defoe headed against the post but Welbeck struck again for Arsenal soon afterwards, finishing superbly from a tight angle.

But asked whether the midfielder could be back for the Thursday's encounter against Cologne, Wenger said: "I don't know yet". He is focused, he told us he is focused on the Premier Leagueand Europa League.

The Gunners bounced back from the Liverpool defeat by spanking Bournemouth 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday to banish their horrible performance at Anfield. He's definitely the preferred forward instead of Giroud, the play seems to be a lot faster with him in the line-up.

Ozil has won three FA Cups in four seasons since moving to The Emirates but hasn't come close to securing Premier League title glory.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has told BBC Radio 5 Live - via The Sport Review - that in order for Ozil to perform to his best of abilities, Arsene Wenger needs to needs to focus the team around the midfield maestro.

Danny Welbeck says a strong preseason has helped his current form with Arsenal.

"Jack is getting stronger and stronger", Wenger said. "The fact that Francis is now out gives him a chance as well".
