Mason Greenwood creates Man Utd history with brilliant Europa League performance

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.

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.
