Manchester United boss delighted having natural goalscorers in Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani

Asked if only Cavani and Ronaldo could find the net in such a fashion, Solskjaer said: "I think you've hit the nail on the head. Edinson and Cristiano are notorious goalscorers and they have that sense and feeling of when to arrive in the box and what can happen.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted with his goalscoring options at Manchester United.

Cristiano Ronaldo made an instant impact on his return to the club, scoring twice in the 4-1 win over Newcastle United on Sunday.

And Solskajer believes he has two natural goalscorers in Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani.

Asked if only Cavani and Ronaldo could find the net in such a fashion, Solskjaer said: “I think you’ve hit the nail on the head. Edinson and Cristiano are notorious goalscorers and they have that sense and feeling of when to arrive in the box and what can happen.

“They’ve played every single situation before, they’ve got that little knack as a striker where they know ‘I’ve got to arrive here’. People will say it’s a tap-in but there’s more to it than that. You’ve got defenders watching, but he’s anticipating that rebound so [for that it’s] a great goal.”
