Solskjaer keeping Greenwood on the right track as young star continues shining

"He is very composed as well with his finishing".

But despite the emergence of Mason Greenwood as a goalscoring threat in Europe, it would be hard to argue that United are better off without them, at least when it comes to goals. It is natural for him.

"Too many times we're 1-0 up and haven't got the second but these boys are learning and this will give them loads of pointers of how we play when performing well", said Solskjaer.

"Mason is going to have a very big career, but sometimes is not the right time to play him", the former United striker said.

"He won't be too long before he's out of his cast, he's going to work through the global break and hopefully we'll have him back in early December". He needs to learn the man's game because he's going up front. "You can't just turn that switch off and on, you've got to perform every day if you're going to be accepted in a place like this". The good thing is he can do it at Old Trafford in front of a full crowd or 62,000, he doesn't get fazed by the occasion.

"He nearly nicked a goal at Bournemouth on Saturday at the back post and the other games where he has played a bit part, he has always done something inside the box".

Manchester United face Partizan Belgrade on Thursday night, November 7 at Old Trafford.

Greenwood, who signed a new long-term contract in October, has scored in three of his four starts this season but is yet to begin a Premier League game this term. "He's still composed. Whether that's a game with his mates in the park or a cup final he will still finish". "He lacks that bit of composure but he's still a young player and I think that will come".

That positive, unruffled personality appears to have helped Greenwood shrug off being dropped to the Under-21s for the recent EFL Trophy match at Doncaster by scoring a late decider dedicated to his late grandmother.

"I think he realises he is one game away from the clouds circling again".

With a packed fixture list on the horizon, Solskjaer says he will take the opportunity to rest key players - particularly for the long trip to Astana.
