Devastating to lose the north London derby, says Welbeck.


Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck expressed his disappointment, after the Gunners lost 2-1 to arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday’s north London derby.

Wenger's side took the lead in the 11th minute after Mesut Ozil’s volley went past Hugo Lloris, but Tottenham levelled in the 56th minute with Harry Kane tapping home for the hosts. The 21-year-old, who was handed the-man-of-the-match award scored his second of the afternoon with a sublime header, securing all three points for Pochettino’s men.

However, Welbeck said the defeat was devastating for himself and his team-mates.

“The boys are devastated to lose the game and it’s not nice for us to come here and lose the derby,” Welbeck said.

“It’s a massive game for the whole club, the fans and it’s something that we’re really disappointed about.

“We came here with good confidence and we thought that we could get the three points today. We went ahead, started well and then tailed off towards the end.

“As a team, going forward we didn’t do as well as we could have done and they took advantage of that. It was really disappointing and on a personal level it was difficult for me to get back in the swing of things after being out for a few weeks.”
