Welbeck scored twice in the space of three first-half minutes to set the tone for the win, and was delighted with his performance.
He told Sky Sports: "I think it was a good all-round team performance from the boys, everyone came together to play some good football and got the goals. They [the goals] were good strikers' finishes, and that's the position I want to be playing in, but I'm happy to play my part anywhere in the team. I'm delighted with the goals today.
"We can't just go away today and sit on the result. I think we've set a platform today, and we want to build on that."
