Solskjaer praises top-class Greenwood as United enter top four

Manchester United bailed out by Mason Greenwood again.

On Wednesday, Manchester United drew 1-1 against West Ham at Old Trafford to secure a top-4 spot in the league table.

Paul Pogba’s embarrassing hand-ball gave West Ham the lead right before half-time.

Young sensation Mason Greenwood kept his composure and drilled a clinical finish past Fabianski to level at the 51st minute.

His 17th goal of the season moved him level with George Best, Brian Kidd and Wayne Rooney.

“Mason has bailed us out a few times, he’s done it again,” Solskjaer admitted.

“He’s absolutely top class. Ever since we gave him the opportunity against Cardiff in the last game of last season, his first start, he was the best player in that game. His talent, his qualities, his attributes – they work at the highest level so we expect him to do it. We see him in training and expect him to hit the target. In the first half, Ogbonna blocked a very good strike, it was a fantastic hit on the ball. The kid’s going from strength to strength.

“With Mason, you know when he’s had a good sleep or he’s stayed up late playing on the PlayStation as then he may not hit the ball as cleanly. What he did today, he’s done it time and time again. Every time he finishes, you can see he’s an exceptional finisher. It’s no surprise when he hits the back of the net as he’s that good a finisher.”
