Premier League giants Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly warned forwards Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford stating that they would need to score more consistently if they need to be a regular member of the squad.
During the recently concluded summer transfer window, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer showcased his remarkable faith on his two attackers as he let players like Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku change bases but kept Martial and Rashford in the team.
Rashford started the season on a positive note with a goal in the first match against Chelsea. However, post the first match he has experienced a dip in his form and has since then accounted for only one goal in his next three League outings.
Martial, meanwhile, has scored a couple of goals in the season so far. However, the bigger problem for them is the fact that they were not able to convert their opportunities into goals.
Consequently, they have failed to win a single match after their 4-0 win against Chelsea.
“You have 38 [league] games, so if you can have 19 goals [each] as a partnership, with those two, so around 40 goals, that’s OK, but it’s not top, top class,” he was quoted as saying by Metro. He was speaking in the pre-match press conference prior to their game against Leicester City.
“[To become better] it’s anticipation, knowing which position you’re in, because the quality is there, definitely, and we’re learning where to run, when to run, how to run, and the last finish, they’ve got to do, of course,” he added.
“They’re practising all the time and hopefully we can see Dan and Marcus getting goals this week, and Anthony can come next week,” he concluded.
