Albion striker Danny Welbeck was glad to get off the mark for Albion in their 2-1 win away at Aston Villa.

The 29-year-old had put Albion ahead in the 12th minute, after he got on the end of Adam Lallana's clever pass to get in behind.

He then ran towards goal, before dinking his effort over the on-rushing Emiliano Martinez to score his first goal.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Welbeck was delighted to finally score on his third appearance for Albion.

He said: "I am obviously happy to get off the mark and I was looking forward to get more goals today.

"But I just saw the ball break to Ads (Lallana) and Ads has got that vision.

"And he knows once the defender makes that move forward I am going to run in behind.

"So it was a great ball and once I was one-on-one with Emi, I just kept my cool and slotted it over him."

Albion did have to survive some late drama when a penalty was given against Solly March, after Trezeguet went down in the box.

However, VAR suggested Michael Oliver go and look at the pitchside monitor and after a few looks he overturned his decision.

But Welbeck thought Oliver got the deicision right.

He said: "Well he got the ball didn't he. He got the ball and I don't think it was a penalty."
