What Man United forwards worked on in training ahead of Newcastle game

2 min read

Mason Greenwood has revealed he has been putting extra work into his finishing alongside fellow forward Marcus Rashford ahead of the game against Newcastle.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be missing Anthony Martial after the striker was shown a straight red card during the 6-1 defeat by Tottenham. Deadline day signing Edinson Cavani will also miss the trip to St. James’ Park as he is currently self-isolating in line with the COVID-19 guidelines after arriving in the UK.

Greenwood has played the majority of his first-team minutes on the right wing but could be moved into his more natural centre role in Martial’s absence.

The youngster is backing his and Rashford‘s ability to provide goals for the team.”We [me and Marcus] have worked on some extra finishing and I’ve worked all week on my shooting so I’m sure we’ll be able to get the job done,” he told United’s club media.

“We both know our capabilities and we both know how to play with each other so it should be good.

“Also though the rest of the team can score, we’ve got players from the full-back and midfield areas who can score. It just depends what team the manager picks and I’m sure whoever gets selected can get us goals.

“We’ve had a week to get our work done and we’ve worked with the boys who have come back from international duty and it’s a good place, even if it might not seem like it. It’s a good place to be and we’re getting back on our feet and I’m sure we’ll do our job against Newcastle.

“We know they’re a tough opposition and going away to any Premier League club is hard. But I’m sure we’ll be able to do our job.

“We’ve looked at some of their weak points and some of the positives, but I’m sure we’ll go there and do our best.”

Greenwood was named on the final 20-man shortlist for the European Golden Boy award earlier this week, which crowns the best player in the world aged 19 or under.

The United forward says he is concentrating on success with United rather than individual honours.

He said: “Obviously it’s amazing to get selected. But I’m also here at one of the best clubs in the world and while it’s good from an individual part, I’m more concentrating on the league and the Champions League and all the cup games coming up.”
