The Red Devils have found themselves in a run of good form since the turn of the year, and the two senior strikers in Solskjaer’s squad, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, have been relatively prolific in front of goal.

Both players have found the back of the net 19 times this term, making them United’s best attacking partnership in a decade since Dimitar Berbatov and Javier Hernandez struck 22 and 20 times respectively in the 2010/11 campaign.
Nonetheless, the duo – along with 12-goal Mason Greenwood – have not been without fault.
Their goals this season have often come in spurts, and missed chances have cost United in key matches this season to leave them five points behind Chelsea in fourth with seven games to play.
Solskjaer will have to see out the remainder of the season with his current attacking options, but after those seven matches the transfer window will reopen – and the United boss has admitted recruiting a top striker is on the cards.
“You need competition for places at Manchester United,” said Solskjaer. “If you think you’ve got a divine right to be playing every game and are doing so well that we’re not going to look for players to replace you, you’re in the wrong place.
