Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck has said that he is extremely relieved to end the goal drought, which has been a major problem for him in the last 10 games. Danny Welbeck has not scored for the last 10 games, which has really been a major dent for his confidence. However, he scored his first goal after a long time in the 5-0 thrashing of Wolverhampton Wanderers recently. Manchester United came into the match against Wolves knowing that they could maintain their lead at the top of the table over Manchester City with a win. They did exactly that against a very poor Wolves team.
The sacking of manager Mick McCarthy was expected to provide some confidence to the team, but it has worked in the opposite way for Wolves. They are now struggling down near the bottom of the table, and even worse is fact that the team is struggling to plug a leaky defence. Danny Welbeck last scored for Manchester United in the match against Arsenal almost 8 weeks ago. It looks like a distant memory now. Even though Danny Welbeck said after the match that he was extremely relieved to score and bring an end to his goal drought, winning the game was far more important.
“Before the game, I actually thought I do need a goal. Thankfully, Sir Alex Ferguson kept picking me and it came today. But you can’t let these things play on your mind, you just play your normal game and, as long as the team keeps winning, that’s the main thing,” Welbeck said after the match. Welbeck was at the receiving end of the Ronald Zubar tackle, which resulted in the red card for the Wolves player. It proved to be the turning point in a match, as Manchester United ran riot after the red card.
