Welbeck — There’s no point looking at others


Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck has admitted his disappointment after the 3-3 draw against West Ham at Upton Park.

Arsene Wenger’s side went into the game knowing that they had to win if they wanted to keep up their bid for the title alongside both Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur, but were unable to walk away with all three points.

The north London side went two goals up through strikes from Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez but surrendered their lead to an Andy Carroll brace before half-time, meaning the two sides went into the break level despite the superior performance put in from the visitors.

Bad then went to worse for Arsenal when Carroll completed his hat-trick shortly after the break, only for Laurent Koscielny to save the Gunners a point with 20 minutes ago.

Speaking after the game, Welbeck, who set up the late equaliser, admitted he was disappointed at the result.

“I said before the game that we wanted to win the game, so it is points dropped. With the circumstances, going two up and then a goal behind, to get the equaliser was good. It was disappointing [not to win].

“We just need to focus on ourselves and play the game that we want to. There is no point in us looking at other teams because we can’t affect them.”

Arsenal are now six points behind Spurs in the league and have 13 fewer than Leicester, making it a difficult task for them to win the division.
