Danny Welbeck believes Manchester United need to stick together after a tough start to David Moyes' reign as manager at Old Trafford.

Welbeck put United in front in their UEFA Champions League Group A clash against Shakhtar Donetsk at the Donbass Arena before Taison levelled for the hosts 14 minutes from time.

Moyes has come under fire following a miserable start to their Premier League title defence, with Saturday's 2-1 home defeat by West Brom a significant low.

But there were far more positives to take from a disciplined display in Ukraine, against a side who have never lost a Champions League game at home to English opposition.

Welbeck told Sky Sports: "In the end it was a decent result. We went ahead when we got the goal early on and we made ourselves hard to beat, it was really difficult for them to score. Towards the end they got that goal and that's the disappointing part.

"I don't think many teams have come here and got three points. We would have liked to get three points but it wasn't to be.

"I think four points from the first two games is alright, especially coming away to Shakhtar and getting a draw. Obviously, we're Manchester United and we want to win every game, but coming here and getting a point, we have to be satisfied.

"Things aren't going as well as we would have liked in the Premier League, but what we've got to do is gather together and concentrate on our next game and not look too far into the future."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
