The 22-year-old has only been a bit-part player for Sir Alex Ferguson this season following Robin van Persie's arrival at Old Trafford.

Despite just one goal for the Red Devils this term, the England forward refuses to get down-hearted with United sitting seven points clear at the top of the Premier League.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "It's been a bit stop-start. I've not been playing in my favoured-position up front - I've been on the wing in most games - so it's been different to last season, when I played mostly as a striker.

"But we're in a great league position, which is the most important thing."

Despite not being a regular in the team, Welbeck is using his time on the training pitch to his benefit.

He added: "This is the best club in the world and I pick up great experience training with the other strikers."

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
