With two games left remaining in the season, Manchester United need to end the campaign on a high and give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer something to build upon.

The Red Devils have two winnable fixtures remaining, which led me to believe that we could well see some youngsters taking part against both Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City.

Amongst those up and coming talents is Mason Greenwood. He has enjoyed a sensational season at youth level, but unfortunately, he won’t be playing against Huddersfield this coming Sunday, Solskjaer confirmed…

”There are a few little niggles, so let’s count the numbers on Sunday morning, I reckon. Mason [Greenwood] started off this week training but then he’s out injured again, unfortunately.” Solskjaer told

“We were looking at bringing him into the squad for the last two games – maybe he’ll make the last one [against Cardiff].” 

It’s a shame that the teenager has picked up a knock because it would have been wonderful to see him in action. We’re talking about someone who could well turn out to be one of the best academy graduates we’ve had in recent years.

He’s scored goals for fun at youth level and now it’s definitely time to make the step up, particularly after making a substitute appearance for the first-team earlier on in the season.

Hopefully, Greenwood has enough time to recover and get himself in the mix to play against Cardiff on the final day. He’s a mega-talented boy and if he can get the nod, play well and earn Solskjaer’s trust, who knows, we could see plenty of him next season.
