Two Out of Three?

Two Out of Three?

Prior to the kick-off yesterday, Sir Alex Ferguson had given a hint that he faces a selection problem when Javier Hernandez returns from his extended pre-season break.

Sir Alex, pairing Danny Welbeck with Wayne Rooney, intimated that it`d be hard to select a front two from his three strikers, and that`s without considering Dimitar Berbatov.

Last night, as well as scoring, Welbeck gave a great performance, a display capped with that delightful back-heel that presented Anderson with the goal of the night.

It was a display that brought the following comment from Sir Alex,

"In the first half he did not play as a forward. He was more in midfield and at half-time I said we needed more presence up front and he made a difference to us."

"He is a talent. We sent him to Sunderland and that is where he became a man. He is still only 20 and has a great future."

"He is a big, rangy, long-legged boy who can gallop quickly. He is a great footballer and has a great attitude to win the ball and a great appetite to win it back."


So has Danny slid a wedge between Rooney and Hernandez?

Is it such a done deal that Hernandez will automatically reclaim that role alongside Rooney?

Tough call for Fergie to make. Hernandez is the more clinical one of the two and his runs open up the game whilst Welbeck seems more of a team play and physical presence. I suppose it will come down to the opposition at the time and the form behind the players.

What about Welbeck and Hernandez up front - with Rooney dropping into midfield?

I wondered that also niteworlok. Out of all our players, to me the real successor to Scholes is Rooney. Issue is, who do you drop from the midfield, with Fletcher being the steel it would mean both Anderson and Cleverley would have to drop to bench roles which based on current form is undeserving.
