Mason Greenwood may be the topic of conversation at Manchester United at the moment having already scored three times for the club this season, but Angel Gomes appears to be intent on forcing himself into the frame.
The 19-year-old has barely featured for the senior side this campaign, making just two appearances in the Europa League, and one solitary outing in the Premier League.
But whilst on international duty with the England U20s side on Thursday night, Gomes was at his absolute best. The attacking midfielder registered a hat-trick of assists in his team’s 4-0 win over Portugal, and that virtuoso display understandably saw United fans flood to Twitter to voice their thoughts on their starlet.
Many Red Devils supporters revealed their absolute delight at seeing him shine, declaring that he is quite simply a “special” talent that they need to help nurture at the club.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
angel gomes is something special honestly man

3 assists for the boy Angel Gomes today . With Pogba and McTominay out I think Ole has to give him a chance. Would love to see a Fred-Garner pivot with Gomes playing as a #10 in Europa League matches at least.
