With their goals on the day, both Rashford and Martial reached 20 goals for the season across all competitions. Greenwood, on the other hand, has now netted 15 goals in all competitions in his first full season with the senior team.

Rashford, with his 20th goal of the season, became the first English player after Wayne Rooney in 2011/12, to score 20 times in a single season for Manchester United.

In spite of the scintillating form the attacking trio, Solskjaer has hinted that the club will look for another goalscorer in the summer. (h/t Evening Standard)

“I think we’ve seen improvement from Mason, Martial and Rashford and they will keep on improving, but we will never stand still. We are always on the lookout if anything is possible. The emphasis is on improving the team all the time.”

Given Odion Ighalo is only on loan at the club for six more months, adding another striker to the ranks wouldn’t be the worst idea.

However, the club must ensure that it does not come at the cost of Greenwood’s development. The 18-year-old has really shone in the ongoing campaign. And for him to continue developing at this rate, regular game time is essential.
