Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed Mason Greenwood as a special talent after his goal in the 3-0 victory over Brighton on Tuesday night at the Amex Stadium.

The 18-year-old opened the scoring at the Amex Stadium before teeing up Bruno Fernandes for the second of two fine goals as United ran out comfortable 3-0 winners.

“He’s getting better,” said Solskjaer.

“You can see clearly that he’s maturing and improving, he’s only 18 still so we will see more from him.

“I’ve said it throughout the year that, as long as we can get him faced up in and around the box, he’ll create chances for us.

“But in this game his hold-up play and his link-up play and general movement was fantastic as well.

“He’s a special talent, a special kid that we are going to look after, try to develop into a top, top player. He’s doing well now, but he is still young and has things to learn.

“He knows that but we have a special talent there we have to nurture.”
