Loads of Man Utd fans make same Mason Greenwood plea for Sheffield United fixture

Manchester United fans agree that Mason Greenwood should start against Sheffield United on Wednesday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side take on the Blades in their first game back at Old Trafford since the Premier League’s return, and must secure victory to maintain hopes of a top four finish.

United’s draw against Tottenham on Friday has prompted some interesting selection dilemmas for Solskjaer, with impressive cameos from the substitutes bench and other underwhelming performances from starters.

One player that particularly shone from the bench was teenage sensation Mason Greenwood. While Paul Pogba earned all the headlines for changing the game, Greenwood was introduced at the same time as the Frenchman and caused as many problems for the Spurs defence.

Greenwood replaced Welshman Daniel James on the right-flank, who rather predictably struggled when coming up against a well organised Jose Mourinho side that sat deep and offered little space to exploit.

And Greenwood, who appears to have bulked up during the enforced break, made a profound impact as he took on a tiring Serge Aurier on the right-flank.

He is more unpredictable when in possession than James and was inches from scoring a last-minute winner with a right-footed effort that slid agonisingly past Hugo Lloris’ post.

Greenwood has scored 12 goals this term, compared to James’ five, and while his best position is not on the right-flank, he crucially offers Solskjaer a more potent goalscoring threat from the role.

It would make sense for him to start against Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United side, who are likely to set up with a low block at Old Trafford.
