Solskjaer on Rashford's form

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he is not worried about Marcus Rashford's form despite struggling in front of goal this season. 

Rashford has already scored three goals for United this season in the Premier League but two of them have come from a penalty spot. He has also missed one penalty this campaign and Solskjaer insists he is not worried about the England international's form. 

"I don't worry about that, he's getting the chances," he said. 

"Of course he could have scored three [against Astana], but the goalkeeper made a few fantastic saves.

"We're working every single day in training with Marcus and he wants to improve and he wants to be better. He could have finished with his left foot instead of his right once, but it was just one of those days. 

"All the goals we've scored have come from our forwards with Marcus, Anthony [Martial] and Dan James so I'm sure he'll chip in with many, many goals. He's still young, he'll improve and you won't hit your peak as a striker until you're 26 or 27. He's still learning what finishes to make in different circumstances. 

"I think today's forwards are different from the old, traditional number nines. There's not many left of them and Marcus can play three or four positions."

United registered a 1-0 win over Astana FC in their first match of their Europa League thanks to Mason Greenwood's second-half strike.
