Greenwood strikes the ball so much like RVP. Same elbow movement. Same back lift. Same follow through.

Often compared to Robin van Persie, the 18-year-old began his career as a midfielder, eventually transforming into a solid forward.
Although the youngster has not accomplished much from the English club, he is a storehouse of a variety of abilities. His style of play has been precise and controlled, having a strategical resemblance to Solskjaer.
The England U21 international had previously astonished the club manager by netting stunning goals against AZ Alkmaar and Everton. Furthermore, the talented forward has registered three goals to his name in the Premier League, which although is seemingly less in number, has shown considerable quality.
Nevertheless, the United No.26 had enough potential and had showcased phenomenal performances in his appearances this season to deserve the chance he was presented with in the fixture against Newcastle.
Blessing the supporters and his club officials with a spell of relief, the teenager has made use of the opportunity satisfyingly well, earning the support of United fans in the process.
