  • United are aiming for more silverware this season after already winning the Carabao Cup

Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag has called on five players in his team to score more goals, but Wout Weghorst is not one of them, somehow.

The Red Devils have had a fairly successful season thus far, as they are looking to qualify for the Champions League while still being on the hunt for two other pieces of silverware.

Part of United’s reason for being so successful so far this season has been Marcus Rashford, as the England forward seems to have turned the corner since the World Cup.

While Rashford’s performances are impressive, it has come as a point of concern for Ten Hag, who now wants other players to also step up the plate.

In his latest presser, Ten Hag singled out several United players who had the ability to hurt opposition with goals, but were yet to hit the mark this season.

"I think we have players like Bruno [Fernandes], like Jadon Sancho, like Anthony Martial, like Scott McTominay, like Antony dos Santos, we have enough players with the capabilities to score goals, definitely.” He said as quoted on The Sun.

Aside from Rashford, Fernandes is the only United player who has hit double digits in terms of goals.

Martial, who has missed a large chunk of the season, only has six goals, while Antony has struck the net seven times.

Sancho has five goals while Scot McTominay, who has been a revelation on international duty, has just two goals.

Arteta gives journalists cupcakes

Elsewhere, Sports Brief also reported on an interesting incident involving Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta.

Arteta was in generous mood after winning the March manager of the month, and offered journalists some cupcakes prior to the press conference.

The gesture was appreciated by the press and got Gunners fans beaming with excitement and boasting all over social media with chants of 'see my manager'.
