Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck has set his sights on the next three matches after scoring in yesterday's win over Norwich City.

The 20-year-old came off the bench to slot home the Red Devils' second goal of the game late on, playing a one-two with Park Ji-Sung to seal a 2-0 win over the Canaries at Old Trafford.

Despite suffering a hamstring injury in the early part of the season, Welbeck has scored five goals so far this term, and is eager to add to that tally in the upcoming games against Liverpool and Manchester City, with a Champions League clash against Otelul Galati sandwiched in the middle.

"I think we're all looking forward to the upcoming games, as are our fans. It's going to be a big weekend when have the derby, for the whole city as well, and we're all looking ahead to it," said Welbeck.

"It's a good base for us. We're looking to work on that and build from there. Hopefully we'll get as many three points as possible. Every single game - week in, week out."

With competition for places so fierce at Old Trafford, last season's Sunderland loanee has been delighted at the number of chances which have come his way thus far.


Back-to-back goals against FC Basle and Norwich have increased the chances of him featuring again in the coming weeks, and the England striker knows he will have to continue taking his chances after the international break.

"I'm delighted. I got two goals in midweek but it was a disappointing result. So I'm pleased to get the last goal today as well. It's all I can do really, if I'm on the bench and am called upon, I'm just looking to make an impact and that's what I did today," he continued when talking to the official Manchester United website.

"We were delighted to get the two goals in the end. It was frustrating but you know what to expect. We're Man United and we've a never-say-die attitude so we kept creating chances and managed to tuck a couple away."
