Mason Greenwood exemplary stats that prove he is new Man United undroppable

Ruthless.

That was the word Rio Ferdinand used to describe Manchester United’s remarkable talent after his two-goal showing against Bournemouth.

Supporters will be running out of superlatives for their new star but one of United’s best ever defenders has summed it up perfectly.

Mason Greenwood is only 18 but finishes chances like a veteran goalscorer. The teenager’s two fantastic strikes past Aaron Ramsdale at Old Trafford take him up to 15 goals in his breakthrough season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It was impossible for Solskjaer to drop the youngster after his two goal contributions against Brighton but his performance against Bournemouth arguably topped it.

Greenwood hit just two shots in the game, scoring with two excellent finishes with either foot, and was perhaps unlucky to be denied the opportunity to score a hat-trick after being hauled off early.

But the fact Greenwood was given an early rest should be seen as a compliment from his manager. He has now become an undroppable in United’s crucial run-in and will no-doubt start against Aston Villa on Thursday evening.
