Man Utd striker Welbeck full of praise for Liverpool's Sturridge

Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck wasn't surprised by Danny Sturridge's goalscoring performance for Liverpool yesterday.

Sturridge offered hope to Reds fans for the future with his second-half performance.

Welbeck said: "We all know Sturridge is a quality player and he's got that goalscoring instinct," he said. "Once he came on the pitch we had to set up a little bit differently. I think we should have tightened more and done a bit more to stop Sturridge running in to finish it [to score for Liverpool]. But we'll learn from that. It's something we won't want to happen again."
