Danny Welbeck gearing up for busy March schedule

After scoring a possibly crucial goal in the Red Devils' Champions League showdown with Real Madrid, Danny Welbeck insists that Manchester United are just taking it one step at a time and preparing thoroughly for each game.

The red side of Manchester currently lead the blue side by an impressive 12 points and Welbeck insists that they are not getting carried away with themselves despite the points gap.

The manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, and the staff at United are responsible for this cautiousness, as Welbeck told MUTV.

He said: "The manager and coaching staff keep reiterating the fact that the next game is the most important." 

"I think the whole squad has got that into their heads and we've all got the same mentality of going into the next game and needing to win to gain momentum.

Part of this cautiousness will no doubt be down to the fact that United let an eight point lead slip in the last six games of the 2011/12 season which resulted in Manchester City going on to win the title on goal difference. This hurt United and they vowed to come back stronger - which they most certainly have.

United now have four consecutive games at Old Trafford and considering they have only dropped three points at home in the league all season many will back them to come out on top against their next four opponents. 

Welbeck went on to say this to the Manchester United website about the chance of four home games on the bounce and the chance to tackle the La Liga champions for a place in the quarter finals of the champions league.

Welbeck said: "Once we come to the Real Madrid game, we'll see what happens. It will be good not to have to travel anywhere for the next four matches in a row and we can try to get wins in every single game."

Danny Welbeck is hoping to help United to a historic second treble and believes that with the right mentality they have every chance of achieving this incredible feat.
