In the 37th minute of today’s premier FA Cup clash between Leicester and Manchester United, the Red Devils drew level after Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek and Mason Greenwood combined in silky play.
Alex Telles slipped it down to Paul Pogba on the left-wing, who held off big-money Wesley Fofana with strength and stutters to fire a low cross into the box.
It looked destined for out-of-favour summer signing Donny van de Beek, who was being pressed by United graduate Jonny Evans, but the Dutchman came up with a moment of pure intelligence.
Van de Beek produced a dummy, leaving the ball to roll through his legs, which meant that it continued on into the middle of the area, where Mason Greenwood drilled home with a tidy first-time finish.

This marks the first goal for Greenwood in just shy of two months, hopefully the boost that springs the wonderkid to a strong end to the campaign.
Manchester United fans probably wouldn’t dream for any other three players to combine for a goal.
