Danny Welbeck relishing chance to prove himself in Manchester United first team

The 20-year-old has scored four goals in seven games for the Red Devils so far this season, including two in the 3-3 Champions League draw with Basel on Tuesday.

“The manager shows time and time again he will give local players a chance and it is then up to the individual to take it. I hope I can,” the forward told

“I don't know whether it is harder for local boys up front to make it. I can only look at myself and take my opportunities when they come.

“To score those two goals was a bittersweet moment for me. To get two Champions League goals, I am buzzing about that, but we didn't get the win we should have done.

“I hope I have done enough to play against Norwich. We have some great strikers at the club and whoever is in there will give it 100 per cent. I just hope I get my chances.”
