Manchester United manager David Moyes believes that Danny Welbeck will continue to improve even more after his recent string of brilliant performances.
Danny Welbeck came off the bench against Norwich and managed to score the winner for United, which was the only goal of the match. Despite his winning goal, which lifted United to sixth in the table, Moyes believes that Welbeck will have to work on his finishing a bit more.
Welbeck, 23, got his fourth goals in five games to secure a sixth straight win for Manchester United.
Scotsmen Moyes was quick to praise Welbeck after his goal against Norwich.
“His performance changed the game. He’s a really good player. What he needs to become now is a really good finisher”, said Moyes.
Although Welbeck’s goal was fortunate after a double deflection, he still managed to keep composed and round goalkeeper John Ruddy in order to slot home just before the hour mark.
With Robin Van Persie already ruled out with a thigh injury and Wayne Rooney missing with a groin injury, United struggled against Norwich. The game changed when Danny Welbeck came on. Moyes was pleased with the way in which Welbeck changed the game.
“Danny has been playing very well and came on to make the difference”, said Moyes.
With the games passing by quickly and players getting injured and that are recovering from injuries, it is important that Moyes gets the balance right and rotates the squad. And with the recent struggles in overcoming injuries, it has been difficult for United to consolidate a formidable midfield and attacking partnership.
Now, with the January transfer window opening tomorrow, David Moyes will be keen to add to the United squad, with players such as Atletico Madrid’s Koke and Galatasaray’s Wesley Sneijder already being linked to the club.
