“The best finisher of the club”, as once described by Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, youngster Mason Greenwood is flourishing under the Norwegian manager. This time, the striker scored an important goal in United’s UEFA Champions League aspirations after being a goal behind against West Ham at Old Trafford.

West Ham’s Michail Antonio scored from a pen, as Paul Pogba played a goalkeeping role as he raised his arms inside the area in a shameful attempt to block a finish. Greenwood scored for Man United in the second half to rescue a point to the Old Trafford team.

All to play now at Leicester on Sunday, as Man United only need a point against direct UCL contenders. In case the Red Devils lose, they will have to support Wolves to beat Chelsea in order to play Champions League football next season.

Manchester United had several opportunities early on through both Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, but Hammers goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski denied both to go half-time with the clean-sheet.

Manchester United’s David De Gea would have done the same if it wasn’t for jealous teammate Paul Pogba, who tried to block a free-kick from West Ham using his hands inside the box. Every Manchester United game has a penalty, and in 99% of times for the Red Devils. However, this time it was different, and Antonio converted from the spot to give the visitors the lead on the stroke of the break.

The hosts came back better from half-time, and managed to level on 51, as Martial and Greenwood combined for a give and go, and the 18-year-old grabbed his 17th goal of the season.

Absolutely brilliant from Greenwood, who has everything to be the next big thing for both Man United and England. The youngster is a sublime finisher, and has been outstanding this season.

Even with the 1-1 draw, the Red Devils moved up third, on 63 points, only one ahead of 5th-placed Leicester, who will be their final challengers in the Premier League on Sunday at the King Power Stadium. The Hammers also celebrate it, as they reached safety and will remain in the Premier League for the next season.
