Manchester United star Mason Greenwood has continued to go from strength to strength and statistics suggest he’s better than some may realise.
The young Englishman scored a crucial goal for his side in the win over West Ham, giving the team a much-needed lead.
United found themselves 1-0 down at the break and needed inspiration after a remarkably poor first-half.
Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford‘s introduction made a difference as it helped shift Greenwood into the striker role where he would go on to score from.
The teenage wonder-kid grabbed the Red Devils’ second in a 3-1 comeback victory and the hope is he can return to the form he was showing towards the end of last season.
Mason Greenwood has scored twice as many goals than any other teenager playing for a Premier League club since the start of the 2019/20 season (nearest is Gabriel Martinelli with 10) #mulive [opta]

Greenwood and Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli often get compared to one another and it’s clear to see who has made more of an impact so far.
The former played so well at one point last season that it became impossible to ignore him any longer and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was forced into putting him in the starting XI on a regular basis.
Greenwood has struggled to get going this season due to a host of off-field issues so the hope is his goal vs West Ham will fire him up once more.
