Mason Greenwood Scores Absolute Rocket For Manchester United Vs Leicester

Mason Greenwood put Manchester United 1-0 up away at Leicester City with an absolutely net-buster of a strike.

The deadlock was broken in style in the 19th minute at the King Power Stadium when Greenwood cut in from the right flank outside the box.

The 20-year-old only had one thing in mind and after working his way into a shooting position, unleashed a stunning effort that flew past Kasper Schmeichel, and went in off the post in extremely satisfying fashion.

It was the fifth goal outside of the box that Greenwood has scored in the Premier League and this was unquestionably the best of the lot.

Greenwood is something of a specialist from range as out of all players with 20 or more goals in the Premier League for United, only David Beckham and Nani have a better percentage of efforts from outside the box.

Mo Salah looked to have won October's Goal of the Month competition following his stunning solo goal against Watford but Greenwood's drive will be well up there in the voting you'd have to say.

The goal was his 21st in the top flight in just 73 appearances and showcased his natural ability to strike a ball so cleanly and with so much power.

United weren't in the lead for too long against Leicester and it was another fine strike in East Midlands. Some slack passing out from the back was punished by Youri Tielemans, who caught David De Gea out with a beautiful curler to the far post.
