” I think you’ve just got to try to stay positive,” Welbeck said via the .
“I had a lot of great help behind the scenes with the medical staff and with James Haycock, who worked with me personally and was great. I think hard work eventually pays off.
“It was a wonderful feeling to get that winning goal at the end. It was just very important for us to get the three points.
“With the type of game it was, it was close right until the end and thankfully we got the goal.
“As soon as I saw Mesut line it up, I just tried to get myself into a nice position, in behind the line of defence. Thankfully it came in my direction and I got the right glance on it.
“I don’t even know what I was doing [afterwards], the facials were going crazy! I’ve seen a couple [of pictures] and it was just euphoria after and I jumped in the crowd.”
