Manchester United Fans Heap Praises On A Player After Brilliant Game

Manchester United returned to Premier League action head high against Aston Villa after booking themselves a place in the Europa League final. In mid-week United was thrashed by AS Roma but they managed to qualify on aggregate.

In today's game United started on the wrong foot and at the 24th minute, Aston Villa forward Bertrand Traore managed to send a wonderful shot past 24-year-old United goalkeeper Dean Henderson. The first half game didn't excite the Reds fans.

In the Second Half, Ole Gunnar's men bounced back in style, and at the 52nd minutes France midfielder Pogba was fouled inside the 18 areas, and without hesitation, Chris Kavanagh made a penalty call. As usual Bruno Fernandes didn't waste the opportunity.

Four minutes later England full-back Wan- Bissaka provided a powerful assist to Greenwood. This goal by Greenwood managed to win United all three points. The player received tremendous praises from United fans. For the last few weeks, Greenwood has been the only consistent United player.

This win against Aston Villa has helped Ole Gunnar's side reduce their gap with Manchester City 10 ten points with one game in hand. Here are the reactions of fans after the beautiful goal from England forward.

@Mod: Mason Greenwood. I’ve said it so many times and I’ll keep saying it, don’t sleep on the kid. Monstrous talent.

@Utddistrict: Mason Greenwood has broken Wayne Rooney's record for the most goals in the Premier League by a teenager for #mufc (16).Starboy.
