MetiNews.Com - Mason Greenwood started again for Man United and scored in their 3-0 win over Brighton in an individual performance that impressed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Breaking News ! Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Mason Greenwood showed how much his overall game is improving beyond his superb solo goal against Brighton. Greenwood broke the deadlock on 16 minutes with his 13th strike of the season on his second successive Premier League start for Manchester United in their 3-0 rout at The Amex Stadium. The 18-year-old also assisted Bruno Fernandes' second-half volley. Greenwood was preferred over summer signing Daniel James for the second game running and, despite the standout goal, Solskjaer was just as pleased with other aspects of Greenwood's performance. "He’s getting better," Solskjaer said. "You can see clearly that he’s maturing and improving. He’s only 18 still so we will see more from him. I’ve said it throughout the year that as long as we can get him faced up in and around the box he’ll create chances for us. But in this game his hold-up play and his link up play and general movement was fantastic as well.
