Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has backed Scott McTominay to score more goals for Manchester United this season, following his current run of form.
McTominay has been one of United’s most prolific players this season, with his latest coming in the 1-0 win over West Ham on Tuesday.
And Solskjaer is confident the run can continue, and has backed him to reach double figures in the current campaign.
He said in a recent chat: “Of course, to add goals from midfield is vital.
“Last season our three forwards were brilliant and really efficient and scored goals – 60 odd – and Bruno came in and scored goals.
“We need more goals from midfield and Scott does have that ability to go box to box. He’s a threat inside the box and he used to be a striker.
“I think for us to move up the league and be successful in the cups, we need our forwards to keep on firing – getting more goals – and I wouldn’t mind some midfielders adding a few. If Scott can get into double figures then that would be a very good season for a so-called defensive midfielder.”
