Cape Town - Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta believes that Danny Welbeck is the “perfect fit” for Arsenal.

The England international has made a fine start to life in north London, scoring five times in 12 appearances for the Gunners.

As Welbeck prepares to face his former club Manchester United on Saturday, Arteta is delighted that he will be lining up alongside - rather than against - the striker.

“I think Danny is the perfect fit for us, [with] the kind of character he is and the kind of player he is,” Arteta told Arsenal Player.

“Personally I have been surprised by his technical capacity, the way he understands the game, his work rate.

“I rate him more now than I used to and this is a good sign because normally the opposite is true when you watch a player on a daily basis. I’m glad he is with us.

“He has got everything here to become one of the best strikers in the Premier League.”
