With 11 goals, his latest coming last Sunday against Aston Villa, Welbeck’s performances have been acknowledged with a place on the PFA’s Young Player Of The Year list.
And PFA chief Gordon Taylor has backed Welbeck’s inclusion on the list declaring that he is benefitting from being at the best place possible for his career:
“To be at a club like Manchester United and to have the benefit from playing with players like Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes, along with Ryan Giggs, can only bring confidence.
“When you get the type of service that team can provide for a striker, he is in the very best place for his career at this moment in time.
“Everything is looking good.”
