Danny Welbeck: Manchester United forward celebrates at Villa Park

Welbeck scored just once last season after having his appearances restricted by the arrival of Robin van Persie.

He made a flying start to the current campaign by scoring twice in the opening game at Swansea but then experienced a goal drought for his club before netting twice again in Sunday's 3-0 win at Aston Villa.

Moyes said: "We had a word with him about a month ago and said he needs to be the last off the training field.

"Wayne Rooney is out there practicing his free-kicks, his finishing and shooting from tight angles every day.

"Danny needs to be out there, even if it's 15 minutes at the end.

"The young boys here are educated to keep improving and practicing. Sometimes, without knowing, you can slip away from it."

Welbeck's contribution at Villa Park was perfectly timed with Van Persie sidelined for four weeks due to a thigh injury.

Moyes added: "He stood up without Robin, took it on and scored two.

"We challenged him on Sunday and said he needs to stand up. He took the bait. I think he said 'okay, I'll show you'."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
