The youngsters lack of goals is not an issue for Sir Alex

United have been scoring freely this season with practically every player in the squad contributing to the plus column as the Reds can’t seem to stop finding the net.

With Wayne Rooney’s recent brace against Southampton, Chicharito picking up where he, well never really left to be perfectly honest and Robin Van Persie exceeding even the most optimistic expectations United have the firepower to score against any side.

One player who has struggled to find the net this season is Danny Welbeck who’s only managed to score once. Sir Alex Ferguson was unimpressed when asked whether the Longsight-born striker’s lack of goals was worrying and whether he needed to keep his chin up?

“Keep Danny’s chin up? That’s not hard, trying to keep him down is harder.”

“He’s a great personality to have around the club.”

When pressed on the issue though, the United boss lost his jovial air pointing out the fact that Rio Ferdinand hadn’t scored in a long time while Nemanja Vidic also only had one goal arguing that like the defenders Welbeck makes an important contribution.

Although one goal all season is a paltry return for an attacking player there’s no doubt Welbeck plays his part as Sir Alex no doubt realises.
