COMMENT By Dominic Toner

Arsene Wenger must name Danny Welbeck in the Arsneal starting line-up against Hull after back-to-back defeats against Chelsea and Watford.

The 26-year-old deserves to be recalled to the starting XI after patiently waiting in the wings since his return to injury.

The England international has proved that he has returned to full fitness, with impressive cameo appearances in the Premier League.

Welbeck also scored twice and assisted another in a recent 5-0 demolition over Southampton in the FA Cup and should claim a starting berth against Hull.

The attacker possesses great pace and also has the trickery to terrorise Premier League defences.

The Gunners were poor in their recent 3-1 loss against Chelsea and either Alex Iwobi or Theo Walcott should make way for Welbeck.

Wenger’s side lacked attacking purpose against the Premier League leaders and Welbeck showed his qualities as a substitute.

Saturday’s match against Hull is a huge game for the Gunners as they are currently 12 points adrift of Chelsea and are barely clinging on to fourth spot.

Marco Silva’s Hull side are currently in a good run of form after being rejuvenated by the manger and will fancy getting something against an out-of-form Arsenal.

Wenger needs to capitalise on the home advantage and select a side that can cause the opposition from the first whistle, something that attack-minded Welbeck will help to do.

In other Arsenal news, the club’s supporters reacted on Twiiter to reported interest in a proven Premier League performer.
