DAVID MOYES raves about resilient MANCHESTER UNITED after they chalked up sixth consecutive win in all competitions.
Sunday, December 29, 2013 – Manchester United manager, David Moyes, heaped praise on his charges after they secured a narrow 1-0 Premier League win over Norwich City on Saturday.
Danny Welbeck stepped up in the absence of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie to score the only goal of the game just before the hour to secure United’s fourth straight Premier League victory and sixth in all competitions.
Moyes was delighted with the impact Welbeck had on the game, but refused to get carried away as the reigning champions moved up to sixth in the log, seven points behind leaders Manchester United who leapfrogged Arsenal at the top of the log with 1 -0 win over Crystal Palace, but the Gunners could regain top spot with victory over Newcastle United on Sunday.
“It’s six points from two games in three days.
“We kept going, we kept at it and we got our rewards in the end.
“I think today they (the players) found a way of winning the game. I am delighted with how they are doing but I don’t think it’s anything to shout about.
“Danny Welbeck changed the game. Obviously his goal made the difference but Danny’s performance changed the game.
“He’s a big part of Manchester United. I think Danny is a really good good player, what he now needs to become is become a good finisher, and today he done great rounding the goalkeeper.”
