Manchester United’s hammering of LASK last night saw youngster Mason Greenwood etch his name into the club’s history books.
United continue to roll
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men visited the Linzer Stadion 24 hours ago, for the club’s Europa League last-16 opener.
The Red Devils entered proceedings brimming with confidence, on the back of a 10-match unbeaten streak across all competitions, and a Manchester derby victory in their preceding fixture.
And, when all was said and done in Austria, United’s excellence of late continued.
Solskjaer’s men utterly outclassed a disappointing LASK side in every facet of the game, to eventually emerge with a 5-0 win.
Odion Ighalo got the scoring underway in spectacular fashion, before all of Daniel James, Juan Mata, Mason Greenwood and Andreas Pereira also got in on the act, to all-but secure the Manchester giants’ spot in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
WHAT A GOAL! 😱

As outlined above, as well as proving another fine night from a team perspective for Manchester United, the Red Devils’ victory over LASK also proved significant for one of the club’s young stars.
The individual in question was Mason Greenwood.
18-year-old Greenwood added United’s 4th of the evening at the Linzer Stadion, shortly after being introduced off the bench.
And, in doing so, the English starlet actually set a Red Devils club record.
As showcased below, Greenwood last night became the first teenager ever to score as many as five goals in a single European campaign in the colours of Manchester United:
