Manchester United’s lack of squad depth and quality over the past five seasons have allowed the likes of Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and now Mason Greenwood a clearer path to the first team. Indeed, Greenwood is one player in particular who’s exciting United fans across the world.
Despite playing just 114 minutes, in the Premier League this season, he’s started three Europa League games and he’s scored twice and assisted once in that time. Furthermore, he’s had an impressive 88.8% pass completion rate, and Who Scored have rated the 18-year-old an average of 7.4/10 for his performances.
He proved his confidence against FK Partizan last Thursday, pulling off a great bit of skill right in front of manager and club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. United’s official Twitter account posted a clip of the skill and fans were quick to show just how impressed they are by their next young talent to break through the academy.

On God, I can truly see @Persie_Official in that kid.
Hope he becomes half as good as Robin was.
That would be massive for us.
