Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has handed plenty of first-team action to Manchester United's young players in their pre-season campaign so far, and Mason Greenwood is one man in particular who has grabbed this opportunity with both hands.
Greenwood is in red hot form as he scored the winner against Inter on Saturday afternoon, as well as scoring the opener against Leeds United earlier in the week.
The 17-year-old forward impressed not only in front of goal, but also with some dazzling play in the middle of the park. With Solskjaer declaring he is ready to be involved with the first team, United fans could be forgiven for getting carried away.
And if you take a look at Twitter, that's exactly what they're doing.

This Nketiah bloke is 20 and Brewster is 19, and they’re being compared to Greenwood who’s 17 — K. (@Man_UnitedK) July 18, 2019

That's not to say everybody is buying into the hype however, as many point out that it is still early days.
Mark my words. No Man United player will score more than Josh King this season. Not Rashford, not Lukaku, not Martial and certainly not Greenwood. All over hyped mediocre players.— - (@FutbolLee) July 20, 2019
The Greenwood hype machine on overdrive..another child who shd be allowed to develop is expected to lead United's attack..fans never learn..— Bants-a-maker Dante™ (@ThaNephilim) July 20, 2019
However good the 17-year-old turns out to be, the ups and downs of his career are always best experienced through Twitter.
