Mason Greenwood named in BBC Team of the Week after Villa win

Manchester United can now finish third if they win their remaining four Premier League games. Before Southampton at home on Monday, though, it’s time for some more reflection from the 2-0 victory away at Villa. A certain someone was named in the latest BBC TOTW…

Well, it was a pretty slow start from the Red Devils at Villa Park, though the Old Trafford club eventually managed to get the job done and secure all three points.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now in the habit of naming an unchanged side that is seemingly capable of blowing away everyone in their path. We’ve gone from barely featuring in these Garth Crooks BBC ‘Team of the Weeks’ to being included in practically every single one!

In fact, it can be argued more than one United star should have been named in this latest edition following the Villa victory… Cheers for nothing, Garth! Anyway, check out the full team here:

Yes, it’s our starboy Mason Greenwood again.

The 18-year-old is in insane form at the moment, as he takes he tally for the season to 16. At this stage, I genuinely wouldn’t bet against him joining both Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial at the 20-goal mark before the campaign is done.

When he gets the ball in even a semi-threatening position, you just know he’s going to make the goalkeeper work. He’s deadly accurate off either foot and that’s something you simply cannot teach.

The scary thing is, he’s only going to get even better. Greenwood already plays with a maturity beyond his years, while regular exposure to first-team football is ensuring he’s developing at a ridiculously-quick rate.

For me, Paul Pogba deserved a spot in this team, too. He was pinging passes all over the field and he finally grabbed his first goal of the season with a sweet strike from outside the area, too.
