The teenage striker was once again on the score sheet during Manchester United’s Thursday’s 4-0 win over AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League.
Mason Greenwood once again made his case for more playing minutes in the Premier League after putting in a decent shift during Manchester United’s routine 4-0 victory over Europa League competitors AZ Alkmaar on Thursday night.
Solskjaer’s men came into this game on the back of two morale-boosting wins over Tottenham and fierce-rivals Manchester City in the span of just four days. That they defeated Pep Guardiola’s Premier League champions at their home turf made their victory over City more memorable for the Red devils.
Greenwood, who started none of those two games, scored a brace here for the Red devils. The match had little to no effect on the club’s fortunes as they had progressed to the round of 32 of this season’s competition two games earlier.
Still, the performance of the 18-year-old in this game, in particular, should force manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to consider making a place for him in United’s starting XI every weekend.
