In recent weeks Manchester United have certainly been lacking in goals, this is should be a big worry for Louis van Gaal.
Paul Scholes recently revealed he would not enjoy playing under Van Gaal, believing the team are scared of playing the final ball and lack creativity moving forward.
Under Sir Alex Ferguson, the Red Devils produced countless goals and last minute comebacks, they always had a reply to difficult circumstances, however, the system Van Gaal is operating isolates Wayne Rooney. Many are claiming his career is winding down, although he cannot score if the players around him aren't creating chances.

The introduction of the young, exciting Anthony Martial has been a significant boost for United this season, but the Red Devils still need one more star to be considered contenders for trophies this season.
In the summer, there was a lot of speculation surrounding a lucrative deal to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid and after the window closed another La Liga star also confirmed interest from United - Neymar. He was supposedly offered a multi-million deal, with a chance to become the face of the club, escaping from under the shadow of the peerless Lionel Messi.
This clearly displays discontent with the quality of the current squad, in previous years United have always lured the best players to Old Trafford, arguably because Ferguson guaranteed titles.
The legacy and fame of the club still transcends globally, clearly the Theatre of Dreams is still waiting for their next world-class superstar.
Over the years, the likes of Eric Cantona, Scholes and Cristiano Ronaldo, to name just a few, made the team so frighteningly dominant.
Martial is one for the future and has a lot to learn whilst Bale and Neymar are at the peak of their careers.
If United could convince the Welshman to leave Spain they could return to former glory.
Bale would completely shift the dynamic of the team, his array of talents include speed, strength goals and deadly set pieces.
He lights up the pitch, produces moments of brilliance, spectacular goals, pace and holds a desire to be the best.
It is clear United need a new superstar. In the last two years, they have been off the pace from the world's elite, consistent but uninspiring.
With one more player like Bale, they will be able to return to the peak of the footballing echelons they once so comfortably resided within.
