According to the Evening Standard, injury to Marcus Rashford looks likely to give Greenwood a chance to start up front, with the 17-year-old slowly becoming more and more of a regular in the Man Utd first-team this season.

The teenage forward has recently shone with goals against Astana in the Europa League and against Rochdale in the Carabao Cup.

However, he’s not seen a great deal of action in the Premier League, and a big-name opponent like Arsenal will surely be a whole different proposition for him.
