Arsene Wenger: 'Danny Welbeck has goalscorer's instinct'

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger praises Danny Welbeck following his hat-trick in the Gunners' 4-1 thrashing of Galatasaray in the Champions League.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has praised hat-trick hero Danny Welbeck following the Gunners' 4-1 thrashing of Galatasaray in tonight's Champions League clash at the Emirates.

The ex-Manchester United striker's three goals, alongside Alexis Sanchez's strike, sealed a comprehensive victory for the North London outfit, despite a nervy final 30 minutes after Wojciech Szczesny was sent off.

Wenger told Sky Sports News: "That instinct of a goalscorer [in Danny Welbeck] was more aggressive and he finished well with the work of the team. He has such good pace it gives him time to finish calmly.

"We had good pace. We did have good pace in all areas of the pitch. You can see how quickly you can lose control of a game when we went down to 10 men but overall the performance was good."

Arsenal climb to second in Group D following their win.
