The 21-year old has spent a lot of time on the bench for the Old Trafford outfit lately with Ferguson preferring Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie in attack but the United manager insists that there will be plenty of action forthcoming for the England international.
"It's difficult for me (to leave Welbeck out)," Ferguson said.
"What we've got to try and do is alternate selections so that Danny feels he is making a contribution. At the moment, we're tending to play him wide left, which I think he is capable of playing.
"He can still provide a certain type of threat from that position and he's done that many times over the years. But I think he's a natural centre-forward and he will get opportunities.
"He has shown with his form for England that he can be a real asset to us through the middle. He's a good goal threat."
