Man United midfielder keen to score more goals

Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini has revealed his desire to score more goals in bids to help manager Louis van Gaal finish in the top four, Skysports reports.

The 28-year-old, who joined from Everton back in 2013, has struggled to find the back of the net in recent seasons despite scoring regularly for the Toffees during his time at Goodison Park.

He managed to net 40 goals in 166 appearances for his former side, but has only score two goals so far this term.

Van Gaal has been deploying the midfielder in a more central role this season, a factor that looks to limit his goalscoring chances, but he is still keen to add more to his tally.

“It’s always good to score but, this season, I have missed a lot,” he told United Review.

“I have created a lot of chances but I have always hit the post or there were great saves from the goalkeepers.

“Sometimes it is luck and I hope it turns. I hope to score seven goals or more again.”

His latest goal for the side came in the 2-1 defeat to Bournemouth back in December, but is feeling confident he can grab a few more before the close of the campaign.

The Red Devils are currently sitting fifth on the Premier League table, but are behind Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in third and fourth respectively by five points.
