Howard Kendall: Danny Welbeck should not have been able to score against Everton FC

SUNDERLAND were good value for their point against the Blues on Monday but I take issue with the scorer of their goals - he shouldn't have been on the pitch.

I'm firmly against loans between Premier League clubs. Danny Welbeck should be learning his trade in the Championship, and not playing for another top flight club because Alex Ferguson doesn't require his services at the moment.

It's not sour grapes because he scored against Everton by any means. I like him as a player and he seems likely to have a bright future ahead of him.

It seems though that the clique of Alex Ferguson is in full swing. He loaned Welbeck to his son Darren at Preston North End last season, and now it's his old pal Steve Bruce at Sunderland.

It seems silly to loan within the league and then have stipulations in the deal that player can't play against the club who own him and things like that.

Saying that, Sunderland played well and a draw was a fair result.
