Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had a clear message for Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford after their 1-0 win over West Brom on Saturday. Solskjaer’s side celebrated a victory over West Brom as Bruno Fernandes netted the only goal of the game from a penalty spot. This was the Red Devils first Premier League home win of the season.
According to ESPN, Solskjaer has told his forwards Martial and Rashford to be more clinical in front of goal. During this season, Martial has made 5 Premier League appearances and has yet to score for United. While Rashford has scored two goals in his 8 Premier League appearances.
Solskjaer has revealed that he has been giving Martial specialist advice about his composure in front of goal.
“Anthony did really develop last season. I thought he made big strides towards becoming the striker we know he can be,” Solskjaer said.
“But Anthony is no different from other players in our team [in] that he’s not had a pre-season as normal, and he’s working to get to his peak form.
“Obviously he lost three games – or three-and-a-half, almost four games – because he had a three-game suspension and it [the sending-off] was very early in the Tottenham game.
“So he’s lost a bit of football. Too much football. He scored against Basaksehir last time [with] a good header, so we hope that he’s just going to continue working hard to get to his best again.”
