Greenwood: I knew how to find the space

“We were always confident that we’d get the three points. That first goal was good play from Paul to get the penalty. We always knew Bruno would put it in the back of the net. It was a confidence booster. From there, we looked comfortable and got the three points.”

Greenwood came off for Edinson Cavani after 65 minutes at Villa Park meaning he could be involved again as United’s jampacked fixture list continues on Tuesday with a home test against Leicester City.

Cavani provided a fantastic contribution off the bench once again, heading home a Rashford cross late on to seal the win. Greenwood has spoken about Cavani acting as a mentor before and declared himself ‘proud’ of the Uruguayan.

“[It was] exactly the same as against Roma,” Mason said.

“You always know what he’s going to do but you still can’t seem to stop him. It’s nice to watch him off the bench. It’s the movement, everyone knows he can do it but it still seems they’re not able to stop him. We’re all learning off him, me, Rashy, Amad… we’re all looking up to him. ”
