(Picture) Stats Reveal Arsenal Striker Outperforms Mario Balotelli already this season

Danny Welbeck’s start as an Arsenal player has surely got off to an entertaining start. The £16m deadline day signing for the Gunners is already living up to expectations. On the other hand Liverpool’s Mario Balotelli has cut a sorry figure for the Anfield outfit. Much was expected of the controversial Italian genius hasn’t been able to live up to the billing.

Comparisons between the pair were always likely to pop up this season after the two strikers signed for their new clubs for almost identical transfer fees.


However as the above stats clearly reveal, Welbeck has hit the back of the net four times in 5 games for the North London side while Balotelli has only scored a solitary goal in 6 matches.

Welbeck has a higher shooting accuracy (almost 53% compared to around 44%) than Balotelli despite the former Manchester United man having 2 shots less (17 to 19). Also the Arsenal striker has played 436 minutes compared to Balotelli’s 490 minutes.

Its still early days to come to a decision on who got the better signing, but as of now Welbeck is winning the debate hands down!
