Mason Greenwood reaches another milestone as he starts for Man United against West Ham

Mason Greenwood has added yet another feather to his cap by becoming the youngest player to make 50 appearances for Man Utd since Ryan Giggs in 1992. 

Greenwood, 18 years & 295 days, returns to the starting lineup after starting on the bench in the FA Cup match against Chelsea over the weekend. 

The teenager has enjoyed an impressive season at Old Trafford, leading to many comparing him to anoter club great, Robin van Persie. 

Indeed, he has broken and set new records in the short period he has starred for the Red Devils. 

When Man United swept aside Bournemouth 5-2, Greenwood became the first Manchester United teenager to score 15 goals in a season. The last one to do so was Wayne Rooney in the 2003-04 season, during which he scored 17 goals the entire campaign. 

He also became the fourth player aged 18 or younger to score in three consecutive Premier League appearances, following in the footsteps of Danny Cadamarteri, Michael Owen, and Francis Jeffers.

Also, his goal against Aston Villa was his fourth Premier League goal from outside the box this season, which set him in a level with no company. 

The sky is the limit for the teen, and what a talent United have in their hands!
