Mason Greenwood has missed the last two games but is back in training and working hard to reach full match fitness.
With that in mind, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer accepts his side must improve going forward and become more clinical in front of goal.
The boss argues that if Greenwood hits the form he had after the initial lockdown, it will be a huge boost for his team-mates and we couldn’t agree more.
There is a lot of pressure on Greenwood and you should be able to tell from how I am writing that we are already reliant on the 19-year-old.
The fact we are not putting teams away and Solskjaer is talking about Greenwood’s fitness says a lot.
“We’re looking forward to having Mason back fit again and well, so hopefully we can hit some form like we did toward the end of last season,” Solskjaer said (via ESPN).
“We need to improve. We need to get more flow and rhythm to our game, be more clinical and take our chances.
“We’ve got plenty of quality and sometimes the most difficult thing is to keep it simple and sometimes we want to over-complicate things. Yeah, we want players to seize opportunity but we need more flow, rhythm, make the opposition move.”
The newspapers claim United are concerned over Greenwood’s training application, as per Sky Sports, which I’m really not sure is newsworthy because every player goes through a difficult time.
Greenwood only recently lost a friend after former Man City youth player Jeremy Wisten passed away.
