The 19 Premier League goals scored by his forwards Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Edinson Cavani, and Mason Greenwood are too poor, thinks Ole Gunnar Solskjær but Manchester United will have an extra edge for the season’s closing period if this can be changed.
With 14, midfielder Bruno Fernandes is the top scorer in the league, followed by Rashford’s eight. But the manager was confident as he noted that before Manchester City’s game in hand at Everton on Wednesday, United’s 50 goals led the division by four.
“We are the team that’s scored the most in the league and you’re right that our center-forwards or forwards haven’t scored as much as we’d like to,” Solskjær said according to The Guardian. “But for me, that’s a big positive. We’re now into the final stretch of the season; if we can get them firing again that will give us another edge in the games.”
“We’re working hard and they’ve got the class and quality. And that means we’ve had goals from other places and positions, which is an improvement from last season. [If we] can marry these two bits together plus defend a bit better then we can be successful this season.”
