Manchester United started without their point man and the wonder kid given the role which he impressed alot. Playing along side New signing Jason Sancho and Bruno Fernandez Made a complete and fierce attacking squad.

However, his off-ball movement, dribbling ability, high pressing when required, clearly showed how complete he is as a forward and how dangerous he is from any attacking position. He has been now ranked among the top promising wonder kids all over the World. He is among the ones with more goals with a very young age.

 For sure, the highlight moment of the match for the youngster was his well-taken goal to restore the side’s lead in the 52nd minute, resulting in the whole of the Stretford End erupting in celebration. With Martial on the bench and Cavani in isolation, it was teenager Greenwood who rose to the occasion and took his opportunity.
