Solskjaer admits his strikers are doing extra training to try end goal drought

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United’s forwards are doing extra training as they bid to end a dry period in front of goal.

Neither Marcus Rashford or Romelu Lukaku scored during United’s seven fixtures in April, with the latter having failed to score a league goal since a brace in the win over Southampton on March 2.

United boss Solskjaer has revealed his forwards are putting in extra work on the training ground, as they seek to rediscover their scoring touch.

“In difficult periods for strikers, you do extra finishing training, you do extra crossing, just to get the confidence up,” Solskjaer told his pre-match press conference.

“We’ve tried to get the feel-good factor and that good feeling back into the players.

“We haven’t scored enough of the chances we’ve created,”

“When I first came in we were very efficient but now the margins have gone against us. We’ve been working on creating chances and scoring again.”

United face Huddersfield away on Sunday.
