Welbeck delighted with goal

The 18-year-old scored the only goal of the match as United won 1-0 in the Carling Cup clash.

“I’m just like any other normal Manc [Manchester] boy, really,” Danny told the United official website.

“To be given the chance to play for United is a dream, and I’m always willing to go when asked. I need to carry on training hard and get more first team chances.

“That’s all of the young boys’ aim. We’re just looking forward to the next round now, so just play as many youngsters as possible, Fergie!”

He continued: “Tonight it was great playing with Michael Owen, because Michael Owen’s Michael Owen. You can always learn from his movement, it’s unbelievable. I just knew he was around the corner and he knew where I was going next. He played it there and I finished it off well.”

He added: “I thought we did really well to be fair, being down to 10 men for an hour. We went one up-front so I was playing as a left winger-striker kind of role. I just had to get used to the game, get a few more touches on the ball and then the goal came, so I was pleased with that.”
