Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck hopes to start against Norwich City on Saturday.

Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck has said that he hopes to start against Norwich City on Saturday.

The 20-year-old was on target twice for the Red Devils in Tuesday's 3-3 draw with Basel and he hopes that his brace has earned him a place in Alex Ferguson's starting lineup.

"I hope I have done enough to play against Norwich," he said. "We have some great strikers at the club and whoever is in there will give it 100%. I just hope I get my chances.

"The manager shows time and time again he will give local players a chance and it is then up to the individual to take it. I hope I can."

United go into the match having dropped their first league points of the season after last weekend's 1-1 draw with Stoke City.
