Mason Greenwood given Chelsea hope by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United prospect Mason Greenwood may be floating on cloud nine at the moment as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms he may feature against Chelsea following a goalscoring display vs Leeds United.

The youngster was certainly impressive and deserved praise with the legendary Norwegian happy to part with some for him.

Greenwood opened the scoring in a wonderful 4-0 defeat of United’s fierce rivals and he gave fans a glimpse of the type of player he could be in the future.

Solskjaer has opted to play the dazzling attacker on the right-wing so far though his two-footed nature means he could probably play on either flank despite naturally being a striker.

The former Molde boss is clearly in favour of Marcus Rashford as his main striker and it helps that Mason’s performances have not been affected by him being shoved out wide.

Given Ole’s attacking options, it’ll be interesting who he relies on over the course of the season as he has plenty of players knocking on the starting XI door.

One would imagine a Rashford, Anthony Martial and Daniel James front three was what the former striker was aiming for but he hasn’t played all three together as of yet.
