Man Utd boss Solskjaer delighted to reach 23-year goalscoring mark

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted seeing his attackers sharing the goals.

Four players have already reached double figures in the Premier League this season - Romelu Lukaku (12), Paul Pogba (11), Marcus Rashford (10) and Anthony Martial (10). It's the first time this has happened since the 1995/96 campaign.

“It's very important," said the manager.

“I'm surprised that it's so long ago [since we had four players in double figures in the league] because I thought maybe me and Teddy [Sheringham], [Andrew] Coley and [Dwight] Yorkie had more than that.

“To have more sources of goals, that gives the opposition a different challenge. They know goals could come from different angles and we still have a few more that can challenge and should get to double figures really."
