It’s certainly high praise to compare Greenwood to a player of the quality of Van Persie, who brought the Reds their 20th and most recent title in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season at Old Trafford.

But the youngster does have some similar traits to the Dutchman who certainly isn’t a bad role model to try and replicate.

Greenwood, along with United attackers Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, is enjoying himself tonight with the Reds comfortably securing their way into the Europa League group stages.

All of the front three have scored with impressive finishes and been involved in some superb link up play.
