Three records Mason Greenwood could still set this season

Mason Greenwood has enjoyed a wonderful 2019/20 season with Manchester United in his maiden campaign with the senior team. 

The teenager has scored 10 league goals in 2019/20, and 17 in all competitions, fast becoming one of the club's best players of the campaign. 

His goals have drawn comparisons with some of the club's legends, while also breaking and matching records along the way. 

He is currently level with the likes of Wayne Rooney on goals scored in a single season by a teenager for the club. 

But with United still in the Europa League, Greenwood could still break or match one or two records, and here are some. 

🎯 Bettering teenage goals

Greenwood needs a single goal to beat the above players and become the highest-scoring teenager in a single season for United. 

If he won't manage it this season, he can still try next season - he won’t turn 20 until 1 October 2021.

⚽ Three players above 20 goals each

The teenager's striking partners Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have equally been impressive in front of goal, bagging 22 each this campaign. 

The Reds haven’t had three players net 20+ times in all competitions during a single campaign since 1964/65, when Denis Law (39), David Herd (28), and John Connelly (20) achieved such a feat.

So he needs three goals to move to 20 and join his striking partners.

👦🏽 Latest academy prospect

The club is known for its good academy that has churned out the likes of Paul Scholes, David Beckham, and Ryan Giggs. 

If Greenwood manages to hit 20 goals, he would have joined Scholes and Rashford as the only teenagers from the academy to score 20+ goals in a single season.
