Rooney-Welbeck new Yorke-Cole, says Fergie
Welbeck scored his 12th goal of the campaign in last weekend's 4-4 draw with Everton, while Wayne Rooney's double took him to 33.
Those performances brought back memories of the 53 goals that Yorke and Cole plundered during United's 1999 Treble-winning campaign.
"Last week we saw something really special," said Ferguson, ahead of Monday's crucial Premier League showdown with Manchester City.
"I know there was a lot of reference to the Yorke and Cole thing. There were similarities to that. Danny's movement was fantastic. Now he is fit again and playing consistently, he has developed better.
"Wayne is 26 now. Danny is 21. For the next few years they can only get better. We certainly hope so."
"It is hard to change our way of doing things," said Ferguson.
"After the spell of domination, when we won the Treble and following that we had big point margins there was a transitional period.
"We tried to rebuild a team with young players, like Rooney and (Cristiano) Ronaldo and one or two of our own young players were starting to come through.
"I think we will probably stick to what we are doing."
