Top Five Manchester United goals this season

With the 2015/16 campaign set to come to an end, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a look at the most memorable goals scored by Manchester United this season.

The Red Devils will face Bournemouth in their final game of the Premier League season before they travel to Wembley for the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace.

United have not had the best campaign in terms of goals, given that they scored the second lowest amount in the division’s top ten.

They managed to only register a total of 46 strikes so far, with 10th place side Stoke City the only team scoring fewer, with 39.

However, United made up for that with their excellent defensive work, a trait that helped them to fifth in the table heading into their final league fixture.

Despite not scoring as much as their top four rivals, here are the top FIVE goals scored by the club this season!

Number 5 (Wayne Rooney vs. Newcastle United)

It just had to be Wayne Rooney when Manchester United take on Newcastle United. Having already scored a penalty earlier in the match, the striker managed to registered his second when he placed the ball into the corner from outside the box.

Number 4 (Anthony Martial vs. Liverpool)

Anthony Martial will never ever forget his Manchester United debut, after he came on as a late substitute and scored this goal against rivals Liverpool.

Following this strike, the forward continued to impress throughout the campaign, netting even more along the way.

Number 3 (Marcus Rashford vs. West Ham United)

If you thought Anthony Martial was a young star, 18-year-old Marcus Rashford managed to do even better, especially with this well placed goal to help his side reach the FA Cup semi-finals.

He even registered two goals against Arsenal, as well as one against Manchester City, this term.

Number 2 (Jesse Lingard vs. Chelsea)

Another player that has excelled under the management of Louis van Gaal is Jesse Lingard, who has emerged as a regular first-team player week in, week out. He managed to reward his manager for his faith with this goal against Chelsea, illustrating both his skill and accuracy.

Number 1 (Anthony Martial vs. Stoke City)

We come back to Anthony Martial who registered what could be the best goal for Manchester United this season.

He showcased his scoring abilities multiple times throughout the campaign, but none was struck as sweet as this one against Stoke City. Aside from the strike itself, the counter-attacking play from Man United was also a joy to watch!
