Brighton & Hove Albion striker Danny Welbeck has not yet scored a goal for the Seagulls in seven appearances this season, but he is excited about the opportunities ahead under Roberto De Zerbi. The former Manchester United and Arsenal striker has not yet scored for the Seagulls this term, despite making seven appearances for the club, six of which have been starts in the Premier League.

He has been a key player for Graham Potter and now Roberto De Zerbi, with Welbeck starting and playing the full 90 minutes at Anfield as Brighton drew 3-3 with Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday. And the 31-year-old says that while he has not yet opened his account for the season, he is happy that chances are now coming for him and that he feels confident goals will follow.

He said he got a couple of chances on Saturday that he really feels he didn’t quite get in the first few games, citing that that’s a progression on the pitch for the whole team. He also added that sooner or later his first goal of the season will come and he looks forward to sticking the ball away.  Meanwhile, Welbeck has spoken of how much he is relishing playing under De Zerbi, with the Italian already having an impact on the Seagulls in the early stages of his time with the club.

The Brighton and Hove Albion striker also said thst he’s very excited to play under the club’s new manager and that the way he wants to play hopefully means that there will be a lot more opportunities to come not just for him but also for the rest of the club’s forwards.  Roberto De Zerbi’s first game in charge of Brighton & Hove Albion ended in a 3-3 draw with Liverpool at Anfield – and Danny Welbeck is confident the Seagulls can keep improving
