Mason Greenwood breaks record with goal against Wolves

Mason Greenwood strike for Manchester United against Wolves proved to be an historic one for the 19-year-old.

His winning goal, which arrived 10 minutes from time, was his 20th in the league for the Red Devils.

This pushed him into a historic club of players who have achieved that benchmark before they have hit their 20th birthday.

Previously, only Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler and Wayne Rooney had completed such an achievement.

“It’s special,” Solskjaer said.

“To get the shot on target from that angle is good, of course the keeper maybe could have saved it but he hit it so quickly.”

“The beauty of him is that he can go outside right foot and inside left foot, so it’s hard for a defender.”

Greenwood has become just the second teenager to score in his side’s first three Premier League matches of the season.

It comes after Fowler did so for Liverpool in the 1994-95 campaign.

Greenwood had found the target against both Leeds and Southampton.

He scored the second in a 5-1 victory and the equaliser in a 1-1 draw respectively.
