Arsenal boss Emery happy with 2-goal Welbeck: Contract talks?

Unai Emery wants Rob Holding to fight for a regular starting spot

Outclassed in the first half and trailing to two Danny Welbeck goals, the Bees were excellent after the break and Alan Judge's superb free-kick hauled them back into the game.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looks set to carry on playing off the left flank, with Alexandre Lacazette excelling in a central role lately.

Here are the Gunners player ratings from the 3-1 victory.

"For us I am very happy".

"Danny Welbeck gives us his commitment every day".

Welbeck's goals saw him become the first Premier League player to score in three different club tournaments this season, having already netted in the league and the Europa League.

After heading the Gunners in front after four minutes, Welbeck rounded off a fine team move for the second before the interval.

Welbeck continued to cause the Brentford defence all kinds of trouble in the opening 45 minutes and he doubled his tally with an easy finish in the 37th minute, after some great work from Alex Iwobi and Nacho Monreal. I said to the players at half-time, "We can either sit behind the ball and let Arsenal have it and take 2-0, or go and ask a question".

"I know they have the previous year of their contract with the team and they are working on speaking with the club, but for me, the focus is only on the performance in each match and every training".

"And for Saturday, he's also another player that I can try, to help the first XI because he's doing very well, with a big commitment. I thought we put up a good fight in the second half, but ultimately they just had more quality than us".
