Solskjaer expects Rashford goals to flow soon

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is happy with Marcus Rashford's performances and has backed the striker to end his goal drought soon.

The Red Devils academy graduate is well on track to enjoy his best-ever season for the club, having already scored 14 times in 24 outings.

His game-time has been restricted due to injuries but there is no doubting his quality and importance to United's top-four hopes when fit.

Despite his impressive form over the season, Rashford has come in for some criticism over the past couple of weeks after failing to take chances against Tottenham, Sheffield United and Norwich.

Indeed, he hasn't hit the back of the net since scoring twice in the 4-0 thrashing of Norwich at Old Trafford in January.

But Solskjaer isn't reading too much into Rashford's current drought in front of goal and feels the England international is still playing a key role.

Solskjaer said: "Of course Marcus has been out for a while but I think he's looked sharp, he came on and looked sharp against Norwich, against Sheffield United he missed one or two chances but the goals he created is what we're focusing on and he's on his way to the best season ever,

"I'm looking forward to him getting more minutes and he'll definitely score a goal soon."

Rashford could be back amongst the goals when the Red Devils look to continue their push towards the top four at Brighton on Tuesday.

United can be backed at 1.53 with Brighton priced at 6.50 and the draw is available at 4.20.
