Manchester United starlet Mason Greenwood has made club history this evening, after being included in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting XI to face AS Roma.
The Red Devils are of course set to return to action shortly.
United have made the trip to the Italian capital, eyeing up a place in the Europa League final at the expense of AS Roma.
The visitors boast a hefty advantage as things stand, having recovered from a half-time deficit to eventually emerge on the right side of a 6-2 scoreline at Old Trafford last week.
Not only that, but Roma also have a whole host of personnel problems to deal with tonight, having lost all of Pau Lopez, Jordan Veretout and Leonardo Spinazzola to injury in Manchester.
Greenwood in the history books
In turn, the hosts will line out as follows at the Stadio Olimpico:

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, meanwhile, is evidently not taking tonight’s clash lightly in spite of United’s significant lead, with the likes of Harry Maguire, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in from the off:

As outlined above, though, it is the inclusion of another of Manchester United’s stars which will imminently result in club history being made.
As revealed by Opta, his starting berth tonight means that Mason Greenwood is set to become the youngest English player to ever reach 100 appearances for the Red Devils:
