Paul Scholes reveals hunch on Manchester United form after Aston Villa win

Mason Greenwood celebrates after scoring a goal during the EPL match between Aston Villa and Manchester United in Birmingham on Thursday

The World Cup victor scored his first goal since April 2019 in another 3-0 win on Thursday night, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side swept aside Aston Villa.

The Red Devils were rampant at Villa Park as they became the first team in Premier League history to win four consecutive games by a three-goal margin.

United manager Solskjaer is confident the club will get back to the top, and said it was up to the individuals as to how quickly.

18-year-old Mason Greenwood has been setting the world on fire for Manchester United this season.

Pogba has made only nine Premier League starts this season, missing a large chunk of the season before the three-month coronavirus hiatus due to injury. "That figure would have to come down considerably and I think it will as well".

"You can not leave players out when they score goals", Solskjaer said.

Solskjaer also says he did not entertain the thought of loaning Greenwood out at the beginning of the season because he always expected him to contribute to the first-team with goals.

"But, the uncertainty of dates, how much holiday can you given them, how will next season look like, it's still a little bit up in the air". He probably wants to be the main guy on the social media side of things, but on the pitch he's thinking, "I'm glad of that, I'll just be under that radar".

United can qualify for the competition by winning the Europa League if they failed to do so through the Premier League, where they are just two points behind third-placed Chelsea.

It's been the surprising appointment of Solskjaer that has seen the club arguably play their best football since Sir Alex's retirement.
