Danny Welbeck has played just shy of 1,400 Premier League minutes so far this season.

Danny Welbeck would love the season to continue beyond next Sunday having been a regular in the starting XI in recent weeks.

The striker has played in seven of the last eight games and scored and assisted twice in his last four matches.

“I have been getting 90 minutes and I am feeling really strong,” the forward said. “I am a little bit disappointed the season is coming to an end because I am on a good run of games.

Welbeck: I wish season wasn't ending!

“I want us to finish the season strongly and we have the opportunity to do that at the weekend against West Ham, we’re looking forward to it.”

The 31-year-old scored his fifth goal of the season in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Leeds United but was unhappy that Albion conceded in second-half stoppage time and dropped a place to tenth in the table.

“Everyone is really disappointed to have conceded so late. Going 1-0 up, we were looking to see out the final few minutes so we knew that might be a situation we would find ourselves in. We’re not happy not taking the points home.

The 31-year-old has scored five Premier League goals so far this season.

“There’s an element of pride when you look at the table, but as a group we are very ambitious, we want to be better.

“We wanted to get the three points against Leeds, maybe their goal was a bit of naivety [by us] but it will give us that little kick up the backside and make us realise we’ve got to be better.

“It was good to get the team on the right tracks with the goal, unfortunately though it didn’t secure the three points which would have made it mean more.”
