Mason Greenwood is the latest star to emerge from Manchester United's academy and he grabbed a brace in their 5-2 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

That comes after he scored the opener in United's 3-0 win over Brighton in midweek.

Greenwood looks to be making himself a permanent fixture in the club's three-pronged attack alongside Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer allowed both Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to leave the club in the summer - a move he was initially criticised for.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has always spoken highly of his young striker

"For me it was the right decision (to let Lukaku and Sanchez go) because I think for the club and for him (Greenwood) he's going to be important for us this season," he said in September.

"Yes he's not played a lot so far but he'll get his minutes and he'll grow and develop."

Since then Greenwood has scored a further 14 goals in all competitions.

The 18-year-old is only five short of the totals put up by his strike partners Rashford and Martial.

And Solskjaer seemingly always knew how much talented Greenwood was.

He previously said: "If you get him inside the box you know something is going to happen and he can go inside, he can go outside. Great finish through the legs of the keeper.

"He is for sure very natural. It is natural for him to score goals, be in and around the box and as I've said before he knows how to hit a ball and he showed glimpses today of what he can become."
