The 23 year old Englishman is beginning to prove his actual worth to the United faithful and to the football world.

After scoring six goals this season in nine league appearances,it seems like Danny Welbeck has proven nearly all the critics and experts wrong by showing the real goal-scoring quality he possesses.

The worrying absences of star men Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney have become enough to torture Man United faithfuls and staff members but the 23 year old ,very responsibly ,has ensured that their absences will never be felt .

He was nearly set to become a part of the "Manchester United clear out sale" which is believed to take place in January,but his recent run of convincing performances have left David Moyes to rethink. Just last season,he had poor statistics to his name and one of those was a depressing and ridiculous conversion rate of 2.9 percent.

And manager David Moyes has lauded the striker by saying "If you look at Danny now, he is a big part of Manchester United,"

"His performance changed the game. He's a really good player. What he needs to become now is a really good finisher."

Due to his tall height, running style, and complexion, Welbeck has been compared to Togolese striker Emmanuel Adebayor and Nigerian striker Nwankwo Kanu, but he has done well to style his game on his boyhood hero Theirry Henry.

He has also become known for his immense work-rate and has been described as strong, quick, and very good and comfortable in the air.

Critics have also somewhat acknowledged the strength in Welbeck's style of play such as his work-rate, pace and intelligence in following tactical command, especially after his commendable performance in both of the knock-out stage matches against Real Madrid last season.

Welbeck is regularly picked for England (amassed 20 appearances in total) despite starting just a handful of games at club level. With Roy Hodgson favouring the 4–3–3 formation, Welbeck's ability in supporting the attack, pressing the midfield and holding up the ball fit into the system.

He is not considered to be as good as Rooney or van Persie,but his height and quick feet do hand him some advantages when going into tackles.
