Man United boss Solskjaer makes Martial, Mason Greenwood predictions
Man United vs Leeds
Manchester United’s Premier League campaign kicks off later today.
The Red Devils will begin their season at 12:30 PM UK time, playing host to bitter rivals, Leeds United.
Owing to the pandemic, this will be the first time that fans of Manchester United and Leeds will have been allowed into the same ground since the Whites’ return to the English top-flight.
As a result, a lively affair is anticipated, with the United faithful no doubt keen to get a proper look at new signing, Jadon Sancho.

Solskjaer backs Martial to improve on goal tally
Ahead of the tie, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been speaking about his forwards.
Anthony Martial had a pretty disappointing 2020/21 campaign overall, which ended in injury. But even before that, he had scored just four goals in 22 league outings, a dismal record for a centre-forward.
Now though, Solskjaer has predicted that Martial will score more goals this time around:
“I think with the forwards that we have, yeah, Anthony will score more goals than he did last season.”
The Norwegian also tipped Mason Greenwood to continue developing, Edinson Cavani to score more goals and Jadon Sancho to chip in with goals as well:
“I think Mason [Greenwood] will only develop. Edinson [Cavani] started late in the season, I think he’ll score more goals. Jadon [Sancho] will come in and chip in with goals so I feel confident that the burden is not just on Bruno to score goals.
“An attacking midfielder shouldn’t be the only one scoring 15-20 goals.”
