Chris Sutton reveals how Greenwood can fire Man United to Premier League title

Why Greenwood was left out of Manchester United squad list for Champions League

Chris Sutton believes Mason Greenwood can fire Manchester United to Premier League glory this season.

Sutton initially claimed that Manchester United would fall short in pursuit of the Premier League title but says that could change if Greenwood thrives.

‘Of course, there was Paul Pogba and his assists, but Mason Greenwood as a centre-forward… I thought that his performance was exceptional.

‘When you actually look back at last season, it was a bit of a write-off for him.

‘I know he finished the season okay, but what he did the previous season when he burst onto the scene, I think everybody expected last season to be absolutely massive for him and for him to perform at such a high level.

‘It’s like having a new player for Manchester United this season. I don’t want to go too early on him, but before the start of the season you are thinking it’s going to be [Edinson] Cavani – they are going to have to rely on Cavani.

‘But his performance against Leeds was that good where you’re thinking, could Ole have actually thought before a ball was kicked this season… Greenwood, can I rely on him as well as Cavani?

‘I didn’t think before a ball was kicked Manchester United could win the league this season, because I think there are better teams and better squads.

‘Maybe the centre-forward position might be an issue, because of Cavani’s age and whether he will play enough of the games. But if Greenwood comes to the fore maybe, just maybe, they are in with a shout.’

Manchester United continue their Premier League campaign on Sunday with a trip to St Mary’s to face Southampton.
