Man Utd manager Solskjaer delighted with Greenwood development

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been pleased with the development of Mason Greenwood.

The 18-year-old scored a fantastic solo goal in Tuesday's comfortable 3-0 win over Brighton.

Speaking after the game, Solskjaer said: "The boys played some exceptional stuff. Mason's first goal was brilliant and he played fantastically. He's a special kid, we know when he gets faced up he looks dangerous. His link up play was great today.

"He's got a knack of that, he can go inside or outside, he is developing into a fine player. We know we have pace and we want to counter quickly, it was a fantastic goal [the third goal], we are very happy with it.

"I don't care about making a statement, I know we are a good team. We will recover and then focus on the next one."
