Or do you get hungrier and realise "That's where I score my goals"?

"Sometimes, players just feel that they're confident enough to score".

"I was in Miami, there was some players who didn't even make the cut for the World Cup", Lukaku mentioned. Rashford has shown himself to be capable of scoring goals, but his best tally was last season with 10. But there wasn't a leader out there.

Paul Pogba's Manchester United team-mates are anxious how he will react to be taken off penalty duties, according to The Sun. So you open up to criticism then, because if Marcus misses it then OK, you can miss a penalty, but now everybody is talking about why Marcus didn't take it, why did Pogba take it?


While most pundits too have been blaming Pogba for the miss but speaking after the match, Ryan Giggs actually blamed Marcus Rashford for the miss. Still, it should be taken into consideration that his first season was the one with by far the most minutes played, over 2600, whilst in the following three years he was always between 1500 and 1600 minutes.

"It's unfortunate he didn't score but that's football".

It was a disappointing result for United after they dominated the opening period, with Solskjaer admitting they lost their way in a "sloppy" second half.

"Wolves probably got the goal they deserve".


"I thought the dude was lying".

"It was a good performance from Teemu today, not only because of his goals but because of his workload, because of his ability to link the play and he is so important to us for the spirit of the team", said Norwich boss Daniel Farke after Saturday's win. With 14 points in two gameweeks, the striker looks good value to reach that average at the very least.

Antonio Conte's men are believed to be deep into negotiations for Sanchez in what will initially be a loan move, temporarily bringing an end to 18 months of bad performances in England. Of course he was, as the tabloids do not care whether the transfer window ended just two weeks ago or not.

"When I go and play for my country, we play the style of play that we want to play probably with Man United and I do well over there".


"There are a few weeks for worldwide transfers to go through but at the moment he's our player".
