The one positive from Manchester United’s loss to Arsenal was Mason Greenwood.
Greenwood came on in the 80th minute, replacing Nemanja Matic.
By this point United were already 2-0 down, and it was good to see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer make an attacking change.
Greenwood looked lively, managing 11 touches during his brief cameo.
He did not manage to get any scoring chances, but he showed enough to suggest he is ready for more opportunities.
This was Greenwood’s Premier League debut. It came just days after his full United debut in the dramatic win over PSG.
It seemed like United were not at the races yesterday, wasteful in front of goal and sloppy in defence.
This is why Solskjaer wants Greenwood as an option, to freshen it up.
The 17-year-old has been prolific for the academy this season, netting more than 20 goals.
Only a minor injury has prevented him from making his debut before now.
Here is a look at how United fans reacted on Twitter to Greenwood’s performance…
