Less than a year ago, Danny Welbeck scored the biggest goal of his Manchester United career when he put his boyhood team 1-0 up against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

"He was marvellous," Sir Alex Ferguson said after the game. "It is a pity he got cramp at the end of game, but he worked so hard.

David Moyes’ Tactical Switch Allows Danny Welbeck to Shine

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

While more often than not this season, David Moyes has gotten his tactics all wrong in big matches, yesterday against Bayern Munich at Old Trafford he got his team sheet spot on. Moyes received praise for his use of Danny Welbeck in the 1-1 Champions League quarterfinal first leg drawbut to me it is a sign of what Moyes was missing during the season and the problems created by the forced inclusion of the expensive and volatile Robin van Persie.

In recent weeks and months, the mere suggestion of getting behind David Moyes, or even backing one solitary decision of his, has been fervently jumped on by certain sections of the United faithful like wild dogs. It's almost like every good thing to happen to United this season (granted there haven't been many) has been nothing to do with the manager at all.

When Robin van Persie went down late in the game against Olympiakos on Wednesday, the initial indication was that the injury was not serious, despite him being stretched off the pitch.

Well on further review that is not the case as the Manchester United striker has been ruled out for 4-6 weeks with a knee ligament injury after a second scan showed the injury was more serious than originally thought:

"Following further investigation Robin van Persie has a sprained knee which will keep him out for around 4-6 weeks" a statement from the club read.

It might not be the turning point David Moyes needed to save his United career, it'll probably not change the way this season will be considered, but tonight's performance showed that United can still turn up and give their fans something to shout about.

Evoking the spirit of '84 might be a step too far, but United proved that they still have enough quality to perform on the big stage and the fans responded admirably, dragging their side through 90 emotional minutes.

It sounds like a recipe for disaster, rather than one for redemption, but if Moyes is prepared to take the massive step and drop his out-of-form striker, it could just be the move that reinvigorates not only his team, but also the club and fans as well.

Key player watch: Danny Welbeck

There's something rather wonderful about a local boy from Longshit becoming the saviour of Manchester United, even if the circumstances by which his importance emerges are less than agreeable.

Following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement, this season has felt like one long wait for some transformative individual to spark off a grand revival under David Moyes.

1. Under Sir Alex Ferguson, you always fancied United to pull off a result, even if all the odds were stacked against them. This season things have been different. Following the desperately disappointing performances and results against Liverpool and City over the past few weeks, when the players couldn't rise above their usual form and put in a gutsy display in a big game, why should fans have expected the match against Bayern Munich to be any different?
