Welbeck: Great to be playing in same Man Utd team as Cleverley

Danny Welbeck is pleased to be playing with good friend Tom Cleverley in Manchester United's first team.

Welbeck and Cleverley have made a big impact this season.

He told manutd.com: "We've been playing with each other since we were little kids. Just to come through to the first-team is a big positive. We're good friends on and off the pitch, we've got a good relationship. We've been at England Under-21s together and, if we're rooming, it's us two together. We are close friends and have got a good understanding on the pitch. He knows my game and I know his. He's come up through the same Academy, with the same coaches and it's great."
