Manchester United earned another three Premier League points as they overcame Burnley 3-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday.
A brace from Mason Greenwood was added to with a late strike from Edinson Cavani, securing victory for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils despite James Tarkowski briefly giving the hosts a scare.
Greenwood was in exhilarating form throughout the afternoon, giving the Clarets a constant headache and continuing his hot form. He has now scored in each of his last three Premier League games, taking his season haul to nine goals in all competitions.
His strikes were of completely different types as he first scored lethally after an extremely clever dummy from Bruno Fernandes.
Meanwhile, his second strike, a late one with just five minutes of normal time remaining, was a left-footed effort that took a deflection off of Jack Cork and ended up settling into the far corner. The 19-year-old will certainly not be disgruntled by that though.
Away from his two goals, Greenwood, who earns £75k per week at Old Trafford, was a constant threat to Burnley.
He managed to have five shots throughout the game according to WhoScored, managing to get three on target which was more than any other player who took to the pitch.
His threat was not just in his efforts towards the goal though. The forward also produced one key pass and a dribble, whilst also attempting a further cross.
Greenwood was also highly effective in the air for the Red Devils too. He won two aerial duels against the Clarets, only Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba winning more in the entire Manchester United team.
Having hailed Greenwood as “top class” just a few weeks ago, Solskjaer will certainly be thrilled with another excellent performance from the striker as he continued his fantastic form in the Premier League.
