LONDON – Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood’s scoring form has made it impossible to leave the teenager out of the starting line-up, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said.
Greenwood scored his 16th goal in all competitions for United this season, and his fourth in his last three Premier League games, in their 3-0 victory over Aston Villa on Thursday.
“You cannot leave players out when they score goals,” Solskjaer said. “He’s 18 and of course he will get better.
“He is a natural footballer and has been in the academy since he was a little boy. His dad showed me a picture of us together when he was seven. He knows we believe in him.”
United are fifth, a point and a place behind Leicester City, and have won each of their last four league games by a margin of three goals.
Goalkeeper David De Gea said they had finally begun to gel as a team.
“We are in a very good way,” the Spaniard added. “Now I feel we are a team. Everyone is on the same way, everyone wants to win, to help.”
