Danny Welbeck will score more than Radamel Falcao?

Manchester United were happy to let Danny Welbeck leave during the summer transfer window, in view of Radamel Falcao coming into the club on a loan deal from AS Monaco. But, former Arsenal player Paul Merson believes that Danny Welbeck will score more at Arsenal during the 2014/15 season than Radamel Falcao will at United.

Danny Welbeck moved to the Emirates from Old Trafford in the final hours of transfer deadline day for £16million, and has started off well for his new club.

Welbeck struggled to secure a regular starting spot at United, often played out of position under Sir Alex Ferguson. The England International was given the go-ahead to leave the club by manager Louis van Gaal, who recently suggested that the forward was not up to the standard of other strikers at the club.

Since joining United on a season-long loan on transfer deadline day, Radamel Falcao is yet to score for Manchester United, while Danny Welbeck has already netted four times at Arsenal.

Paul Merson said:

“[Welbeck will] score more goals than Falcao, in my opinion

“I was shocked that he was allowed to go. A young English player – very shocked.”
