Some misses seem worse because you simply register a goal in your head as the chance opens up, but Mason Greenwood could only find the side netting after rounding the keeper early for Man United today.

It’s a surprising miss because we’re used to Greenwood scoring some amazing goals so this is a simply chance in comparison, while it would’ve been the perfect way to recover some of his confidence too.
