David Moyes has challenged Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck to score 20 goals this season.

The 23-year-old netted his fourth goal in five games after the United forward came off the bench to score a second-half winner in a 1-0 win at Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday.

He should be certainly looking to score 20 goals

Welbeck finished United’s title-winning campaign with one league strike to his name in
Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season in charge at Old Trafford.

And Moyes wants the Red Devils man to add to his current tally of six top-flight strikes and attempt to break the 20-goal mark this term.

“We have said to him we are trying to keep his finishing up. I think he can keep his efforts up, his levels up even better,” said Moyes.

“I think Danny has responded, he is saying ‘hey this is quite good I am beginning to score some goals and getting recognised for that as well’.

“He got one goal last year and now he is on seven for this season.

“It could be better, but you have got to say it is going in the right direction.

“With the second half of the season to go, he should be certainly looking to score 20 goals.

“We need him to do that because when you don’t have Wayne and you don’t have Robin, then you need people to step up to the mark.

“In quite a few of the games recently he has done that for us.”
