Following his strike against Aston Villa, Manchester United teenager Mason Greenwood has re-written the Red Devils’ history books.

Following his impressive emergence from the club’s illustrious youth ranks, Greenwood has grown to establish himself as a vital part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team plans.

Since making his senior competitive debut in 2019, the young English attacker has gone on to feature in 101 matches, in all competitions.

In light of his most recent performance, Sunday afternoon’s Premier League match against Aston Villa saw Greenwood continue his brilliant run of form much recently.

Helping to ensure the Red Devils complete a familiar second-half comeback, Greenwood’s strike just after 50 minutes gifted his side the lead which was later doubled by strike partner Edinson Cavani to seal a 3-1 victory.

Following what was yet another impressive showing by the 19-year-old, Greenwood’s latest showing now sees him write his name in the club’s history books.

Greenwood has now overtaken Wayne Rooney to score the most Premier League goals for Manchester United as a teenager (16).

Reacting to that record, he said as per the club’s website: “It was a good goal.

“I just knew that he [Mings] was coming tight to you in the box, so if you get a little movement then you can get half a yard. I finished it well, I’m happy with my goal today.

“Hopefully there are many more to come. I’ll try and keep scoring goals so no one else can come and break the record in the future! I’m happy scoring goals.“
