Danny Welbeck spoke after scoring in Arsenal's 2-1 win at West Ham United on Sunday. Read on to find out what he said:
on ending the year on a high…It was definitely important to get the win today. It puts us back in amongst it and we need to be further up the table. It was a tough game today as you could tell from the end of the game.
on beating a team in the top four…It’s vitally important. To go into this Christmas period, we want to be gaining points and put the pressure on the teams around us, so it was great that we got the three points today.
on his performance…I’m happy with my performance but I think we could’ve killed the game off a bit earlier. We missed a couple of chances - I had one and some of the other players had one where we could’ve maybe won the game earlier. That’s something we need to improve on.
on Southampton…They gave us a difficult test at home and we know how well they’ve been doing this season, so we have to prepare physically, mentally and tactically right for this game. Going into the New Year, we want to start it off well.
on climbing up the table…The most important thing for us is to concentrate on the next game because we can’t afford to look too far ahead. We’ve just got to make sure that we’re ready for each and every game.
