Mason Greenwood scored as Manchester United beat Aston Villa 3-1 on Sunday afternoon.

Greenwood’s goal against Aston Villa means the teenager is now Manchester United’s highest scoring teenager in the Premier League.

The goal was Greenwood’s 16th in the English top flight, breaking the club record previously held by Wayne Rooney.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed Greenwood as a top player following his goal against Aston Villa.

Solskjaer said: “He is top. I was thinking curl it far post, but he goes near – he has all the finishes, he worked really hard today and showed what he can do.”
