This season, though, both have the chance to go one better and have a major impact on what's shaping up to be an intriguing title race.
"These are exciting times," Welbeck told Inside United. "I feel I’m actually a part of it, playing in these big games and every single point counts. I'm going out there every weekend and playing in these games, there’s nothing better than that. It’s so exciting and you want to win so badly.
"You’ve just got to be confident within yourselves to know that once you come to these games, you’re going to win and get the points. If we win every single game then we’ll win the league, and that’s what we’re always looking to do."
The full interview is in the new issue of Inside United, on sale Wednesday 29 February. The official magazine is also available by subscription from www.manutd.com/magazine.
