Danny Welbeck is determined to continue his impressive goalscoring form for Manchester United this season, as he bids to get his hands on a first Premier League winner's medal.

After spending the majority of last season away from Old Trafford on loan, the 21-year-old striker has played a pivotal part in the club's 2011-12 title tilt this year, having established himself as a first-team regular in Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

Having watched on as his Red Devils teammates celebrated a record-breaking 19th domestic crown, Welbeck insists it has made him, and midfielder Tom Cleverley - who also spent last season out on loan - even more eager for success this year.

"I'm so hungry," he told Inside United. "I was just talking about it before in the canteen with Tom Cleverley. Clevz was biting his fork as well as his food and growling [laughs]!

"We both want it so much. I don't think anybody understands how hungry we are for this title. We want to fulfil our dreams, win the title and keep winning and keep winning. There's nothing going to stop us."

With local rivals Manchester City currently leading the way with a two-point advantage over United, there is all to play for in the remaining 12 games of the season, in what is shaping up to be an intriguing Premier League title race.

"These are exciting times," Welbeck continued. "I feel I'm actually a part of it, playing in these big games and every single point counts.

"I'm going out there every weekend and playing in these games, there's nothing better than that. It's so exciting and you want to win so badly.

"You’ve just got to be confident within yourselves to know that once you come to these games, you’re going to win and get the points. If we win every single game then we’ll win the league, and that’s what we’re always looking to do."
