Manchester United did it the most difficult way possible by and by on Sunday night when they edged past Brighton 2-1 at Old Trafford.

Having fallen behind to an early Danny Welbeck objective, the Red Devils returned thundering after the break to grab each of the three focuses late on.

Joined has now gotten 25 focuses from losing positions in the Premier League this season – the most in the first class.

Marcus Rashford got the equalizer before Mason Greenwood headed home the definitive objective with seven minutes left.

Greenwood additionally hit the post during the game and had an inside and out sure evening.

He has battled for objectives this term, netting only two in the group. Be that as it may, there were unquestionably some encouraging indications of getting back to frame in his most recent trip.

Would greenwood be able to be United’s best option striker next season?

Joined has been connected with Erling Haaland lately, and it is not difficult to perceive any reason why. The Borussia Dortmund assailant has scored 21 objectives in 22 Bundesliga games this season.

Greenwood has not had the option to deliver those numbers this year, however his showcase on Sunday featured his conspicuous potential.

He has generally worked from the traditional this season, which may clarify why his objective count has evaporated.

It was just a year ago, however, that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer portrayed him as an “excellent finisher.”

Coming from a previous striker imself, that is high applause for Greenwood, and it proposes that his future lies in a focal territory.

Obviously, there is the impulse to toss cash at Haaland and afterward bank on him to get straight down to business in England.

In any case, possibly United should adopt an alternate strategy, particularly with Haaland evaluated at £128m, which is supposed to be an impressively more prominent total than United’s present exchange financial plan.

Possibly it is the ideal opportunity for Solskjaer to give Greenwood an all-inclusive run as the group’s focal striker among now and the finish of the period since he may very well have a genius of things to come right in front of him as of now.


While some may scrutinize Greenwood’s consistency, the equivalent can’t be said for Tottenham’s Son Heung-min.

The winger has been in glimmering structure this year, recording 22 objective contributions in the association.

However Greenwood coordinates well against Son concerning one characteristic – spills.

According to WhoScored, Greenwood has finished 28 effective spills in England’s top division in 2020/21. In the mean time, Son has made 29 effective spills yet has gone through 1020 minutes longer on the pitch than the United man to arrive at this number.


Shockingly for Greenwood, he doesn’t pile up so well against Son with regards to tracking down the net this season – the South Korean forward has 13 group objectives to his name.

Notwithstanding, a more pleasant correlation is to perceive how Greenwood is getting along contrasted with other United adolescent wonders when they were his age.

Greenwood has now scored 12 Premier League objectives as a youngster – Wayne Rooney (15) and Marcus Rashford (13) are the lone United players to have scored more before their twentieth birthday celebrations. Given that he doesn’t turn 20 until October, Greenwood actually has a lot of time to beat the records of his archetypes.

Rooney and Rashford proceeded to set up themselves in their individual positions, and have thrived in the main group. That is presently the assignment that faces Greenwood.
