Mason Greenwood became the youngest Manchester United player to score and assist a goal in a European competition against Partizan Belgrade tonight.
The Reds secured qualification into the Europa League group stages by easing to a 3-0 victory at Old Trafford, their biggest home win since the opening Premier League game against Chelsea.
Greenwood was handed a start on the right-wing by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and made an immediate impact, opening the scoring midway through the first-half.
The 18-year-old received a poked through ball by Marcus Rashford and produced a typically composed finish, wrong footing the goalkeeper before slotting in with his left-foot from close range.
He then assisted after he closed down an attempted Partizan clearance and the ball deflected to Anthony Martial who took on three defenders in a special solo goal.

Greenwood is delivering at every opportunity for United and could be a solution to Solskjaer’s problems on the right-wing.
The Norwegian has already described the youngster as the most natural finisher at the club and its time for Greenwood to get more minutes and see if he can make a difference for the Reds in the Premier League.
