‘Going forward they’re a threat and it’s nice to see’

Manchester United “look like they are going to score goals when they go forward”, says Fulham captain Tom Cairney.

United have won five and drawn one of their six games so far in 2024, scoring at least twice in each fixture.

Cairney, who spoke to the Footballer’s Football Podcast, said: “I feel like they’re a bit of a threat at the minute, I enjoy watching them, the Wolves game was amazing.

“I want them to be a top team, just for the Premier League in general. I enjoy watching them again, I thought they were good against Villa.

“Going forward they’re a threat and it’s nice to see, it’s refreshing to see Manchester United going forward and looking like they’re going to score goals, even though their top [Premier League] goalscorer is a midfield player [Scott McTominay with seven].”

He added: “I’d expect Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes by the end of the season to both be in double figures.”

Rashford has five Premier League goals so far this season, while captain Fernandes has scored three.

Fulham are scheduled to face Manchester United at Old Trafford on 24 February.
