==Playing style==
Due to his height, running style, and skin colour, Welbeck has been compared to [[Togo]]lese striker [[Emmanuel Adebayor]] and [[Nigeria]]n striker [[Nwankwo Kanu]],<ref>{{cite news |last=Herbert |first=Ian |title=Welbeck the pick of United's latest crop |url= |work=The Independent |publisher=Independent Print |date=28 February 2009 |accessdate=28 December 2013}}</ref><ref>{{cite news |title=Danny Welbeck Profile |url= |work=ESPN FC |publisher=ESPN Internet Ventures |accessdate=28 December 2013 }}</ref> but styled his game on his boyhood hero [[Thierry Henry]].<ref>{{cite news |title=Prodigious United Talent Hails Arsenal Legend |url= | |date=10 July 2009 |accessdate=28 December 2013 }}</ref>

Welbeck is regularly picked for England (amassed 11 appearances in year 2012) despite starting just handful of game at club level. With [[Roy Hodgson]] favouring the 4–3–3 formation, Welbeck's ability in supporting the attack, pressing the midfield and holding up the ball fit into the system.<ref>{{cite news |title=Who should start as England's third forward – Danny Welbeck or Daniel Sturridge? |url= |work=HITC Sport |publisher=Entrepreneur |date=22 March 2013 |accessdate=28 December 2013 }}</ref><ref>{{cite news |title=Danny Welbeck wins his England spurs in attempt to unseat Jermain Defoe |url= |work=The Guardian |publisher=Guardian News and Media |date=14 October 2012 |accessdate=19 January 2014}}</ref>
