Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford will return to scoring ways soon.

England forward Rashford, who suffered a double stress fracture to his back, has already scored 19 goals for United this season, but hasn't hit the net since the English top-flight resumed from its coronavirus pause, although, the 22-year-old has registered assists since he returned from injury.

He also missed a couple of chances in last week's 3-0 victory against Sheffield United at Old Trafford.

"Of course Marcus has been out for a while but I think he's looked sharp, he came on and looked sharp against Norwich," the United boss said ahead of Tuesday's clash with Brighton and Hove Albion.

"Against Sheffield United he missed one or two chances but the goals he created is what we're focusing on and he's on his way to his best season ever.

"I'm looking forward to him getting more minutes and he'll definitely score a goal soon."

The Norwegian added: "The players are working really hard and want to do as well as they can and, for me, as a team, we're trying to implement our ideas.

"Talk about 14 games, we can talk about the next one - go into the next game knowing you've won the previous game. It's a good place to be in."
