“I want to make sure I stake a strong claim to be vying for a striker’s role at the World Cup and to do that I know I need to have a good Premier League season first. I need to be playing regularly for United, scoring goals and playing consistently.”

Welbeck's World Cup dream

But rather than shying away from the matter, perhaps by referencing the fact he played as a winger for much of last season, the United forward is bullish when tackling the issue.

“It is an area I want to improve. If I need to help the team out by playing in other positions, I will do it. But I am aiming to get a better goal return from out on the wings anyway. That would benefit the team. All the strikers know that once they get their chance they really have to take it.”
