Danny Welbeck says he’s unhappy that the team dropped points in the North London derby, and said the Gunners should have done more with the possession and chances they had.
The striker told Arsenal Player, “It could have been better. We really controlled the game, we had a lot more chances and they got one shot in the second half and it went in so we’re a bit disappointed with that. It’s disappointing to draw the game.
“I know what it means to the fans and the whole club. I really wanted to get the three points so I’m a bit unhappy.”
Welbeck also bemoaned the first half injuries which robbed the team of changes which could have had more of an impact as the game went on.
“It is difficult because we set out as a team knowing what we wanted to do and with the injuries coming into play, it changed everything for us and made it difficult. We would have preferred to make those substitutions later on in the game.”
His thoughts were backed up by Arsene Wenger who admitted he’d have liked to introduce more attacking players in the second period.
Having had to make two enforced changes, the manager said, “It restricted the options to put strikers on.
“I only had one position left. If we could have brought Rosicky and Podolski on in the final 30 minutes, it would certainly have made a difference.”
