Welbeck fields questions sent in by Reds supporters around the world...
Which player names were on the back of your shirts as a kid?
I had ‘Welbz’, but no players. If I could have had anyone, it would have been Giggs as I idolised him. I liked Thierry Henry, too, but that wouldn’t have gone down too well on a United shirt!
What’s your favourite goal you’ve scored in your career?

In terms of game time, is it just a case of being patient?
Yes, it’s important not to lose patience and make sure I work just as hard on the training pitch – do extra work, in fact – so that when the time comes and I get the nod, I’m match-fit and game-ready.
Everyone has been talking about our incredible attacking options, which include four top strikers. What is it like to be a part of that?
This is the best club in the world, so it’s exciting to be involved and I’m picking up some
