Solskjaer delighted with Man Utd pair Rashford, Martial: But I'm waiting to see them blossom...

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is happy with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, but admits they have areas to improve on.

The pair have taken on the goalscoring load this season after Romelu Lukaku's departure, scoring 19 goals apiece across all competitions.

"I've always had faith in the forwards we have at the club - Mason, Marcus and Anthony," Solskjaer said ahead of Tuesday's clash with Brighton.

"I think they're boys who improve on trust, I think they're good boys to talk to, discuss and sit with and they know that I trust them, they know I want the best for them, but they also know I've got to make decisions for the team and the club.

"They've all taken responsibility at different parts of the season and I'm delighted with all of them. I think all three have had a good development this season but they can be so much better.

"All three, I'm still waiting to see them blossom because there are parts of their game that they still need to improve on."
