Welbeck - I wanted to make an impact

Danny Welbeck scored the decisive goal against Norwich

Danny Welbeck spoke to the media after Arsenal’s 1-0 win against Norwich at Emirates Stadium. Below is a transcript of what he said:

on his impact…

When you are on the bench, you want to come on and make an impact. Thankfully I got the goal and it was a difficult game with Norwich trying to avoid relegation and they were fighting until the end. We had to win this game to get the three points. It was a good win for us.

on the fans…

I think it is one of this things as a player where you have to focus on the match and not too much on the surroundings. Obviously the fans are so important to football clubs, and it is something you have to respect. Everyone has an opinion but we just have to do our stuff on the pitch.

on being a substitute…

It is down to the manager, but I want to play every single game as players do. Being out for such a long time and coming back, you have to get back into match fitness. As you can tell, I’m blowing and I only played 30 minutes. It was nice, and I want to keep on playing games and building up my fitness.

on where he prefer to plays…

I think I have been asked this 1,000 times. I prefer to play as a striker, but once I’m on the pitch I’m going to do my best and try to win the game for my team.

on the league title…

Everyone is very disappointed. We knew it was a great opportunity for us to go for the title this season. It is difficult to handle with the way it has ended. It has not ended yet, but the way it is ending, I think we know in ourselves and as a club we should be doing better.

on Spurs…

We want to finish above Spurs, but obviously they want to finish above us. It is going to be difficult and we want to win our remaining two games in the season.
