Manchester United striker Robin van Persie says he's happy to share the goals around.

Van Persie hopes to see his midfield teammates chipping in with more efforts this season.

“Last year, I don’t think our wingers scored enough. Hopefully, we can get more from them, which would be really helpful for ­everyone.

“So it doesn’t only come from Wayne and me but we threaten on all sides. Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick need to add to that, too, from corners, free-kicks, whatever.

“The reason we scored goals against Leverkusen was because everyone was looking for the pass in front. And that always starts with the back four and midfield looking for that pass when it is on."
