His inability to however find an adequate replacement has so far jeopardized Man Utd’s scoring chances this season with Anthony Martial particularly proving that Deschamps was right to ostracize him from the French national team.
Promising academy sensation, Greenwood has had an impressive having scored in 3 of his four appearances for United in the league and he got handed down his first league start in the match against Cardiff City.
