Wout Weghorst scored his first Manchester United goal in the League Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest, and claimed an assist in the 2-0 Premier League win over Leeds for Alejandro Garnacho’s goal, and his work rate has made him a regular in Erik ten Hag’s starting line-up. Speaking to the club’s official site, Weghorst has spoken about his start to life at United.

It’s good and I’m happy. That’s the thing that I wanted before I came here, to be part of it, to be important and the start overall is good. There’s room for improvement and things can go better but, as a beginning, the most important thing is that we’re keeping on track like we’re doing now by winning the games. Of course you want to have as much of a contribution in it by scoring goals and feeling important. There’s a little bit of room for improvement still, but we keep going.

Weghorst has yet to score a goal at Old Trafford but will be hoping to open his home account in Sunday’s game against Leicester.

Whether it’s the first one or not, at the end as a striker you want to score goals. That’s the best feeling, the most amazing feeling. That’s what you’re doing it for as a striker. I’m waiting for the first one here at Old Trafford. Unfortunately it’s taken a little bit too long already for myself but I have to stay quiet and just work really hard and do my thing. Then hopefully that will come soon. I think that will be a special moment.
