MetiNews.Com - Mason Greenwood returned to the starting XI for Man United's game against Brighton and opened the scoring.
Breaking News ! Manchester United fans compared Mason Greenwood to Robin van Persie and Cristiano Ronaldo following his goal against Brighton in the Premier League. The 18-year-old returned to the starting line up after coming off the bench during the weekend's win against Norwich in the FA Cup. Greenwood got the nod ahead of Daniel James on the right of the front three and opened the scoring at the Amex Stadium with a fine solo goal. Aaron Wan-Bissaka played a smart ball into the path of the youngster who slotted past Mathew Ryan after some quick step-overs in the penalty area.

It justifies his selection on the right-hand side. “It’s getting to the point now where it will be impossible to leave this lad out. He reminds me so much of Robin van Persie when he cuts in on that left foot off that right side. The composure, the technique.”
