Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals why Manchester United are winning plenty of penalties this season

After a spot-kick handed them a 1-0 win over Leicester City, Manchester United have now been awarded four penalties this season.

Marcus Rashford converted his second penalty of the season after missing one in the 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford. Paul Pogba also missed a penalty in the 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers after Rashford netted one in the opening 4-0 win over Chelsea.

Solskjaer was asked why United were being awarded a lot of penalties this season, "I think it's the type of players we've got. They've got quick feet, good skills and most of them haven't even been debatable. They've got skills and when we get Anto [Martial] back as well, I'm sure we'll have loads of claims. And with VAR you'll get more than you don't."

Rashford won United's penalties against Leicester and Chelsea, while Pogba was upended at Wolves and Scott McTominay tripped against Palace.
