Manchester United have a real problem up front this season this season.

Romelu Lukaku has been in quite dreadful form as of late.

The Belgian striker enjoyed a good start to the campaign but has not scored for his club since September, meaning he hasn't scored for United in over two months.

Unfortunately for United, they don't have many good alternatives for Lukaku.

Marcus Rashford is the man best placed to play instead of the former Everton striker, but many believe his best position is on the wing.

The same applies to Alexis Sanchez who, like Lukaku, has been very disappointing as of late.

Jose Mourinho may feel as if he has to turn to youth in order to get United firing.

And, fortunately for him, he may have a player capable of doing so in United's youth team.

Mason Greenwood has been turning heads at the club for some time.

Despite being 17 years old, he has scored goals almost at will for Man Utd's youth teams this season.

And he continued that form on Tuesday afternoon.

Mason Greenwood scored a wonder goal against Young Boys in a 6-2 win

He started for Man United U19s in their game against Young Boys in their Champions League tie, where he impressed greatly.

The English side would prevail 6-2, with Greenwood scoring his side's first two goals.

And his second goal was just special.

Winning the ball back on the half way line, the 17-year-old turned and drove towards the Young Boys goal.

No player in yellow got anywhere near him as he slalomed towards goal, and he completed what was a superb solo run by rifling an unstoppable strike from outside the box into the bottom left corner.

Watch it below:

And watch his highlights from the game below:

That is just pure quality from Greenwood.

Those two goal against the Swiss side on Tuesday take his tally to the season to 17 in 15 games.

He may only be 17 years old, but he's constantly a standout performer in United's youth teams.

With Lukaku struggling up front for the first team, Mourinho may be tempted to promote the youngster.

And that's certainly a view shared by United fans.

Many have been calling on Mourinho to turn to Greenwood for some time, and that point was again reiterated after his solo effort.

It might be about time that Mourinho gives him a chance.

Should Mourinho give Greenwood some minutes for the first team? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
