Look, it is another Englishman (Don't worry, I am as shocked as you are.)
Danny Welbeck is a good football player, he was last season and he will be this season. Do not confuse his lack of goals with not being good at playing the game of football. A lack of goals means he is not a good striker, but that will be the difference this season
The 22-year-old made his first real statement last season against Real Madrid in both legs of their Champions League last 16 tie. He scored an excellent header in the Bernabau and over the 180 minutes was Manchester United's best player.
For some reason this performance, and many others like it, were not enough to convince all of his footballing ability.
It is all goals, goals, goals these days. However, what we saw against Swansea, in pre-season, and in England's friendly vs. Scotland is Welbeck has now discovered one of the most important rules of being a striker. 'Be in the box.'
Not only has he stumbled upon this revelation, but he suddenly has the all important confidence in front goal which means he can pull off audacious chips like his second goal against 'The Swans'.
So, what do you get when you add excellent footballing ability with goals? You get a darn good player who will worry almost every defence this season.
Judging by what Welbeck has shown in front of goal so far, and what he has already shown in previous seasons, the English forward is certain to be a front runner for the end of season award.
