Man of the match Aaron Ramsey and goalscorer Danny Welbeck spoke to Sky Sports after the 2-0 win over Man Utd at the Emirates this afternoon. Here’s what they had to say.
Extra special for Welbeck to score against his old club, but what did it mean for the team?
It was really important for us to get the victory today, obviously, with our position in the table, we need to be further up there. It’s something we’re all disappointed about but to get the win and hopefully give us a good end to the season.
Aaron, you’re Man of the Match, does the formation bring out the best in you?
I felt good in the games I’ve been playing in, I’ve been getting into goal scoring positions and playing that formation gives me a bit more freedom. But it’s a formation we’re still working on, we showed today we can be effective using it. We’re delighted for ourselves but also for the fans because they deserved that today, to go home with a smile on their faces.
Danny, you love United, but you keep doing it to them!
Obviously I grew up there, so it’s a special place in my life, but once you get out on that pitch it’s business and I want to help get the points for the team. I think we did that today.
You smiled and celebrated.
Yeah, when you score you’ve got to happy, so it’s only normal.
A good day for top four hopes, is it still on?
I said a few weeks ago we had to win every game and we didn’t do that against Tottenham, so let’s just build on this now and finish the season strongly. Hopefully win them all and see where that takes us.
