Welbeck: Spurs defeat hurts

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck says losing to Tottenham is never a good feeling, especially after the result slightly diminished their top-four aspirations.

The Gunners suffered a 2-0 defeat in the last ever North London derby at White Hart Lane on Sunday, which was a major setback in their bid to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Arsene Wenger's men sit sixth on the Premier League table and trail fourth place Manchester City by five points, although they still have a game in hand.

"It's obviously difficult you take and I felt we had a bit of control in the game but with the way it ended, 2-0 is not good for us at all," he said after the game.

As their chances of qualifying for the Champions League now look bleak, the former Manchester United striker said they would continue to fight until they end of the season.

"As a team, get together, analyse the game and then move on from this. It's very difficult to take for the club, for all the players, the fans. It's not a nice one to lose and we want to make it right next week."
