Danny Welbeck: Faces fierce competition for places at Manchester United

Fierce competition for places at Old Trafford means Welbeck often finds himself restricted to a place on the bench, with Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney entrusted with starting berths.

The 21-year-old has, however, shown both in the Premier League and at international level with England that he is capable of troubling the best defences in the business.

Ferguson has full faith in a product of United's famed academy system and has pointed out that every member of his squad will get ample opportunity to impress over the course of a long season in which the Red Devils will continue to compete on multiple fronts.

"It's difficult for me (to leave Welbeck out)," Ferguson said.

"Robin van Persie has come in, we've got Wayne Rooney. You tend to rely on the experience of these players.

"What we've got to try and do is alternate selections so that Danny feels he is making a contribution. At the moment, we're tending to play him wide left, which I think he is capable of playing.

"He can still provide a certain type of threat from that position and he's done that many times over the years. But I think he's a natural centre-forward and he will get opportunities.

"He has shown with his form for England that he can be a real asset to us through the middle. He's a good goal threat."

t's just a ride. Bill Hicks is sorely missed, what a prophet and still relevant twenty years after his death. I'm glad though he didn't get to see George Bush Jnr as President.
