MU has just won a feat of winning 4 consecutive matches in the Premier League with 3 or more goals, and Mason Greenwood has a very prominent participation in this series of results.
Specifically, Greenwood scored 4 goals in the last 3 matches, against Brighton, Bournemouth and Aston Villa.
Not appearing much in the early stages of the season, but entering the sprint race after Covid-19, Greenwood had more frequency of competition, and he quickly asserted his value.
A series of milestones associated with teenage players are set. Greenwood became the first 18-year-old player to score three consecutive Premier League matches in the 21st century.
After the Aston Villa victory, Greenwood went down in history as the second young MU player to score three consecutive matches in England’s highest football tournament in 62 years.
Mason conquered this miraculous milestone at the age of 18 and 282 days. The youngest was Alex Dawson, April 1958 – when he was 18 and 54 days old.
Greenwood scored 9 goals in the Premier League 2019-20, after 28 finishes, with 18 accuracy. Thus, the conversion rate of his shots into goals is 32.1%.
This rate is more than double the MU average in the Premier League. The Reds succeed with 15.5% of finishes. Details are 380 shots, 200 shots on target, and 59 goals.
Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford – who have 15 goals in the Premier League – are not as effective as Greenwood, 28.8% and 21.7%, respectively.
Therefore, while helping Greenwood develop, coach Solskjaer needs to help the young brother maintain his feet on the ground away from the glamor and the media attached.
More than anyone else, it is Mason who has to regulate and control himself.
Over the years, MU and European football have a lot of talent to appear. But it is rare for adults to have many different factors.
“Mason must control his own life, the right activities to develop potential,” coach Solskjaer warned.
Greenwood – who is aiming to score the fourth match in a row – needs to be alert to take control of his path.
