Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck was on the score sheet for Manchester United in their match against Bolton. It helped Manchester United closed the gap to Manchester City to just the goal difference, although Manchester City have the opportunity to once again re-establish their three-point advantage when they take on Wigan athletic on Monday night.
However, closing down the gap was the best Manchester United could do on the evening and it was started off by Paul Scholes, who recently returned from retirement on the request from Sir Alex Ferguson. Manchester United has been suffering a number of injury problems of late, which has meant that youngsters like Danny Welbeck have been getting a number of opportunities.
The England striker did not disappoint in the match against Bolton as well. He was on the score sheet, as his second goal gave Manchester United in the comfortable lead they were demanding. Paul Scholes scored in the injury time of the first half to the Manchester United the lead. Danny Welbeck then doubled Manchester United’s advantage in the second half, although all was not rosy for Manchester United, as Wayne Rooney missed a penalty. Michael Carrick then continued his goal scoring form in recent weeks to put the game beyond any doubt in the 83rd minute.
“With everything he has got going for him, he could be capable of being in the team every week. You have got a kid busting a gut and desperate to impress everyone — the supporters, management and staff and, in this present day and age, that is worth its weight in gold. He has got what a lot of young players have not got in this day and age — he is focused, enthusiastic and wants to do it,” Former United star Lou Macari said in praise of Danny Welbeck.
