After scoring a great goal against Liverpool for the Reserves, which has made United favourites for the league, Gabriel Obertan has now set his sights on making a difference for the first team in the remaining Premiership matches.

“It is good for the confidence to score some goals and good when the manager is watching the game,” said Obertan. “There are four matches left in the Premier League so it would be nice to be able to have a few minutes on the pitch. It’s been a bit difficult the last couple of months but I’ve worked hard with the reserves and in training, and it is paying off.”
