Cape Town - Danny Welbeck earned Arsenal a point in a 2-2 Premier League draw at home to Hull on Saturday.

Welbeck's later equaliser left the Gunners with just two wins from their opening eight English Premiership encounters.

"It was bittersweet because we started the game well," Welbeck told arsenal.com.

"They got the early goal [in the second half] and made it difficult for us because they just sat back.

"I was pleased to get a goal but disappointed not to get the three points.

"There's different ways you can look it at because they've been working hard all game, they maybe got a bit tired towards the end.

"You don't see those sort of things on the pitch but being on the pitch makes things more difficult. We need to see how we can evaluate it from there."

Welbeck then turned the attention to young defender Hector Bellerin.

"I thought Hector was brilliant today," Welbeck added.

"He's really quick and once he got going it was difficult for Hull to stop him.

"He made a few defensive challenges that got the ball back for us as well."

Arsenal trail log leaders Chelsea by 11 points and will travel to Sunderland on Saturday in search of a win.
