Mason Greenwood's goal record for Manchester United in the Premier League is remarkable

Mason Greenwood scored twice in Man Utd's 5-2 win over Bournemouth

Mason Greenwood looks like he is going to the very top.

The Manchester United striker has been on fire since the Premier League's restart, scoring three goals and recording one assist in five games.

Alongside Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, United currently possess a front three which is the envy of world football right now.

In total, the trio have combined for 55 goals in all competitions this season, with Greenwood notching eight in the Premier League from just 914 minutes of action.

It now means the prolific 18-year-old is scoring a goal every 114 minutes in a league described by many as the toughest in the world.

In fact, only Manchester City's Sergio Aguero has a better goal-per-minute ratio than United's teenage star.

Below, we've provided the 10 players - who have scored more than five goals - with the best ratios in the Premier League in 2019/20.

Rashford and Martial

In all competitions, Greenwood's record also puts him in second place for goals-per-minute, with Aguero once again leading the way.

However, the United starlet has attempted fewer shots-per-goal than the Argentine, so make of that what you will.

GIVEMESPORT'S Danny Ryan says...

Greenwood is the real deal. Rarely do players have such an impact in English football before their 20th birthday.

The way he can finish with both feet is scary for opposing defenders and he plays like a striker 10 years his senior - which is an enormous compliment, by the way.

United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer were hammered a few months back for not bringing in Erling Haaland during the January transfer window.

The manager was eager to back Greenwood and now, his decision is paying dividends and in doing so, he's saved the Red Devils a bit of money.

Well played, Ole.
