How England can stop Arsenal striker crisis for Watford clash

It is a good thing that the Arsenal boss has a pretty good understanding and working relationship with his opposite number from the England national team, because Arsene Wenger may have to ask for a helping hand from Roy Hodgson over the next week or so.

Wenger is not the sort to do a Fergie and invent some minor injury problem and force his players to miss out on international duty and I am not sure it would work anyway as Welbeck has been out of action for so long that he will be desperate to remind Hodgson just what he can do for England ahead of the Euro 2016 tournament.

However, Arsenal could really do with England doing us a favour by looking at Welbeck in the game against Germany on Saturday and then resting him or using him sparingly next Tuesday against Holland. Why? Because Arsenal need our England striker to be fit and fresh to start against Watford on Saturday as Wenger will not be able to start Alexis Sanchez or Joel Campbell.

Both are set to be back very late from the break as Chile and Costa Rica have World Cup qualifiers on the other side of the globe late on Wednesday night. The Arsenal boss has already spoken about the doubts over Welbeck’s ability to play two games in quick succession so can Hodgson and England rescue this potential Arsenal striker crisis?

    No need to worry, Kane, Vardy and Sturridge are way ahead of Welbz.

      not true, as a club player there is no question, they are ahead right now, but for the national team welbeck is ahead of them because he always performed very well every time he played for the england as the striker especially in the qualification

        If I were Hodgson I would take Welbeck over Sturridge to The Euros
        Welbeck scores for England plenty of times and he is less injury prone and I think better than Daniel

        In fact I rate Welbeck even over that £300k per week United player lol.

          yeah me too, but only for the national team, club-wise i have to say last season he was reaaaaaally bad as a starting striker in the time when giroud was injured, but now he seems improved but lets wait before we overestimate him, but yeah rooney hasn’t been great for about 5 years already, but i really like sturridge in the club if it werent for his injuries he and kane would be the contenders for the golden boot every season… well as long as agüero has injury problems himself 😛 the same like sturridge on a higher level.. if agüero werent so injury prone he would be challenging suarez and lewa for the title of best striker ^^

    Why can’t Joel and Sanchez start vs Watford. Neymar and Suarez who will play around the same time for their countries, will return to play in the el classico the same day as when we play Watford.
