Danny Welbeck insists that Manchester United will not get complacent as they look to take a step closer to the Premier League title with victory over Manchester City at Old Trafford.

United head into Monday night’s derby showdown at Old Trafford knowing that a win will allow them to open up a 18-point lead at the top of the table with just seven games left to play.

And 22-year-old striker Welbeck insists that Sir Alex Ferguson’s men need no motivation ahead of the crunch clash.

“It’s a huge motivation, but that motivation has been there all season,” Welbeck told United Review.

“To be 15 points ahead is a big margin but we won’t get complacent. Our mentality is always the same for every match – to win. That won’t change.

“Of course, knowing victory tonight would put us within a few points of the title is a massive incentive for us.

“Everyone has felt the excitement building in the city ahead of tonight’s match and it’s one we’re all looking forward to.”
