Storylines are everywhere in football. They could revolve around a certain individual, like Mario Balotelli’s struggles to find the net in Liverpool red, a certain team, such as Newcastle’s civil war, or even a game, like Danny Welbeck’s first outing against the boyhood club he left in the summer.
The England man’s clash against former Manchester United teammates as an Arsene Wenger disciple at Arsenal could well dominate the game’s build-up, but first he has to be declared fit to play.
Welbeck is part of an entire combined XI, with enough in reserve for a fully stocked substitutes bench, either ruled out by injury or a doubt for the match, which Ladbrokes rate Arsenal at 6/5 to win and United at 23/10.
