Jamie Redknapp has praised Manchester United manager David Moyes for turning Danny Welbeck into a regular goal-scorer.

The 23-year-old forward netted a second-half winner to help secure a 1-0 victory over Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Under Sir Alex Ferguson, Welbeck was struggling to score. Now Moyes has him doing that

Welbeck’s strike against the Canaries was his fourth goal in five Premier League games – and his sixth of the current campaign.

And Redkanpp can see Welbeck’s improvement under Moyes after the England international managed one top-flight strike last term.

“It’s always important to have a deep squad, and David Moyes will be delighted to have Danny Welbeck in his,” Redknapp wrote in his Daily Mail column.

“With Robin van Persie out, Wayne Rooney has taken on the bulk of responsibilities up front, but Welbeck is now playing an absolutely vital role.

“He was a super sub at Norwich, scoring after coming on at half-time, and he now has four goals in his last four league games for United.

“Under Sir Alex Ferguson, Welbeck was struggling to score.

“Now Moyes has him doing that. Earlier this month he told Welbeck to follow Rooney’s example and stay behind after training to work on his finishing.

“It’s amazing to hear a manager having to encourage his players to work harder; that should be par for the course.

“I always looked at senior players and followed their work ethic but, in fairness, it seems to be working.

“Since the start of December, Welbeck’s scored twice as many goals as he had during the rest of the season and his shooting accuracy has improved by 10 per cent.”
