Arsenal boss Wenger: Welbeck better than I thought

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits Danny Welbeck's ability has surprised him.

Welbeck hit a hat-trick in Arsenal's 4-1 win against Galatasaray.

"The potential is there and hopefully this hat-trick will help him to gain confidence," said the Arsenal boss. "We had good pace and good movements and our finishing was good and Danny was on the end of a few.

"It helps always to know that you have a good chance to play the next game. His link up play is good as well his work-rate and his attitude is positive. He's a team player, not only a finisher. He wants to help the team.

"I've learnt he's a good finisher. I believe technically he's very sound. That was a surprise, he's technically clean and that he's a good passer of the ball. I didn't know he was so quick, honestly. I knew he was quick. But he can be electric when he starts."
