Welbeck close to Man Utd return

Welbeck has been out with a hamstring problem since United’s 8-2 win over Arsenal, and was expected to be out of action for the remainder of the month.

Ferguson has now revealed that the 20-year-old should return to training next week.

“Danny is making good progress,” said Ferguson.

“The injury is not as bad as we thought and he should be training next week.”
