Match of the Day pundit Danny Murphy praised Mason Greenwood after his goalscoring display against Leeds United over the weekend.
Manchester United ran out 5-1 winners and Greenwood managed to score a brilliant goal, as well as leading the line impressively throughout the game.
The former Liverpool man thinks Greenwood can become United’s main number 9 for years to come.
“I think it’s a great problem for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer,” Murphy said of MOTD 2.
“I said it a long time ago, I think he can go on to be Man United’s main number 9 for many years to come. He’s that talented.”

Even with Edinson Cavani coming back into the squad this week for training, I don’t think Solskjaer can drop Greenwood after his performance against Leeds.
Next up is a trip to Southampton and he will be looking to continue his goalscoring form.
As will Bruno Fernandes after starting the campaign with a hat-trick.
