Mason Greenwood has been selected to make his 100th appearance for Manchester United.

At the age of 19, this is a quite staggering achievement, and shows the trust manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has placed in him.

Solskjaer gave Greenwood his debut back in 2019, and the teenager has gone from strength to strength.

Greenwood’s achievement is a rare one. Here is a look at the five Manchester United players to play 100 games for the club…

Duncan Edwards

Duncan Edwards was on course to become one of Manchester United and England’s greats. He became one of United’s youngest ever debutants in 1953.

Edwards went onto make 177 appearances in a short career which was tragically cut short in the 1958 Munich air crash.
