Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has called on Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood to find the net more often as Manchester United look to chase down Manchester City.
Solskjaer is delighted his side are the top scorers in the Premier League but wants more contributions from his front line.
Bruno Fernandes leads the scoring charts for United, with 21 goals in all competitions and while Rashford isn’t too far behind with 17, Greenwood and Martial have only scored 11 between them.
And their manager called for the attacking trio to find the net more regularly to ease the reliance on Fernandes.
‘We are the highest scoring team in the Premier League – so that’s something to build on,’ said Solskjaer.
‘But it’s fair to say that Mason, Anthony and Marcus – the forwards who scored so many goals last season – haven’t really hit those same numbers this time.

‘I’m looking at it as a positive because when they start scoring then we will be a much better outfit and our results will continue to improve.
‘They are getting closer, but it’s a case of finding that better finishing.’
Solskjaer is pleased with his side’s ability to create chances, but stressed the need to be more clinical.

“I think we have improved a lot in terms of being consistent, but we need to be more clinical and ruthless with our chances.
We do create lots of big chances. Scoring that first goal is important in any game.
“We’re a work in progress, but I feel we are getting better and getting closer to being a team that can really challenge.
