Not an article I ever thought I would be writing, but after Danny Welbeck’s Hat-trick for Arsenal in the Champions League last night, I find myself duty bound to bring you the Arsenal’s strikers odds on being the Champions League top goal scorer this season.
The lad can’t seem to stop scoring at the moment, and although not in the same class, I do believe there are parallels with the signing of Thierry Henry, when they both arrived with a reputation of having potential but neither had been totally trusted in a central striking role at their previous clubs as their finishing could be a touch erratic.
That ‘problem’ seems to be getting rectified under Arsene Wenger as he has now moved Welbeck more central, as he did with Henry, and hence showed the player he believes in him.
Welbeck’s Hat-trick last night has now seen his odds to be the Champions League top scorer trimmed in to a best price of 20/1 with bet365.
Each way terms for this market see bet365 paying out a quarter of the odds for a top 4 finish. With the type of football Arsenal play, Welbeck could well see his tally of goals mounting up throughout the group stages alone this year.
With two matches against Anderlecht still to come, and a home match against the attack minded Borussia Dortmund, I expect to see plenty of opportunities for Welbeck, making the each-way bet from bet365 look excellent value.
