Manchester United prodigy Mason Greenwood impressed in flashes during his maiden Premier League start against Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham.
The Englishman almost scored when he fired a shot looking to test Gazzaniga before the Spurs keeper managed to keep it out of the goal post.
According to WhoScored.com, Greenwood was also one of United’s best players on the pitch, registering a 6.8 rating and outperforming opposition striker Harry Kane.
As a result, Red Devils supporters have flocked to praise Greenwood for his composure on an ultimately huge night for the youngster – especially with a Manchester derby looming at the weekend.
Here’s what they had to say on Twitter, with some quick to rank him higher than Antony Martial.
He is better than Martial

Greenwood game intelligence is wonderful for someone so young.Looks after the ball so well and often is always in the box sniffing for opportunities to score. Deserves a start at the Manchester derby. Will ole be brave enough to select him?? We will see 🔴⚫️⚪️ #MUFC
