Welbeck: It's all about United

Danny Welbeck insists Manchester United are too focused on winning matches to care about other scorelines across the Barclays Premier League.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s men currently hold a seven-point advantage over title rivals Manchester City, although that gap could be reduced by the time the Reds face in-form Tottenham on Sunday, given the Blues face Fulham 24 hours earlier.

But Welbeck believes United can only concentrate on the Spurs game and maintain the same single-minded approach as the Reds continue to chase a 20th English league title.

“Our main focus is ourselves and we’re not looking at anybody else,” Danny explained to ManUtd.com.

“Getting three points is the main thing and we’re not looking for any other results. Obviously, City could shorten the gap and it is key that we maintain our seven-point lead.

“Every game we play in the league is important and the main thing is to go out and get the three points. We can’t watch other teams and see how they are doing. We have to look after ourselves.”

This term, Welbeck has been limited to just eight league starts due to squad rotation and the sensational form of summer signing Robin van Persie. But instead of moaning, the 22-year-old has praised the Dutchman's growing influence and outlined the benefits of United's strength in depth.

“Robin is a world-class striker and it’s great to be playing alongside him,” Danny explained. “He is deadly in front of goal, but it’s not just his goal scoring that he’s added to the team.
