Welbeck content with draw

Danny Welbeck insists his United team-mates are disappointed but not disheartened by Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham in the Premier League.

While one point is never as good as three, Welbeck feels a draw at White Hart Lane cannot be viewed as a bad result and has praised the Reds for twice coming from behind through Wayne Rooney after conceding goals to Kyle Walker and Sandro. 

“Coming to White Hart Lane, we had the ability to come and win the game,” Welbeck told MUTV. “That was on our mind but unfortunately we gave away two goals. Credit to us, we quickly got the goals back afterwards. We are a bit disappointed but we can be happy with a point at the moment.

“After Wazza (Rooney) got the goal, we played some good football and moved the ball about. We gave away too many free-kicks which put us under pressure, so if we can limit ourselves from doing that then I'm sure we will be a lot better in future games.”

Referencing Sandro’s wonder-strike in the 53rd minute, Welbeck expanded: “I thought David should have caught it! I’m joking, obviously it was a wonderful strike and I was right behind it at the time. When he kicked it, it was outside of the post and I thought there was no chance that it would go in. Suddenly, it was in the top corner and it was just a strike that you can’t do anything about.”
