Last season, the name of Danny Welbeck appeared on the score-sheet with alarming regularity.
This season, things haven`t quite gone so well for the young forward with the statistics showing that Danny has scored just the 1 goal in 27 games.
However, Wayne Rooney has sprung to young Welbeck`s defence, pointing out that he`s rarely been played as an out and out striker this season, something Wayne has also experienced during his United career, or as Wayne puts it,
"Everyone labels Danny as a striker, which I`ve had at times when I have played in different positions."
"Then someone says I haven`t scored for eight games when I hadn`t played up front."
"Danny has been out wide a lot this season, but he works hard and brings a lot of energy to the team. When he gets a run up front, he`ll score goals."
Here`s hoping Danny`s luck starts to turn tomorrow night when all the indications are that Welbeck will start alongside Rooney, up front for England!
