Sports Arsenal have to be patient with Danny Welbeck- Arsene Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has pleaded with fans to be patient with Danny Welbeck as he is confident that he will soon start scoring goals for the club.

Welbeck has been singled out as one of the culprits in Arsenal's abysmal performance against Borussia Dortmund in Tuesday's loss in the UEFA Champions League.

The 23-year old striker missed a handful of chances in the game,coming close on three occasions but failing to convert any of the opportunities he got.

Wenger said Arsenal "have to be patient" with the new signing,who has now made two appearances for them since joining from Manchester United.

"Danny will improve - we don't have to make a problem of that," said Wenger.
