Mason Greenwood bagged his first-ever Premier League goal for Manchester United in the club’s 3-3 draw against Sheffield United on Sunday and became the league’s youngest scorer so far this season in the process.
After fellow academy graduate Brandon Williams bagged his first league goal aged 19, the 18-year-old gunman came off the bench and scored an instinctive finish to become United’s third-youngest Premier League goalscorer. The goal also saw him become the first player younger than iTunes to score a Premier League goal.
Another academy product in Marcus Rashford then went on to score United’s third goal of the game, which kept up a crazy, ongoing statistic: every league scorer for the club this season has been 23 years old or under, with 5 out of 7 of their league goal-scorers academy graduates.
Every #mufc's league scorer is 23 years old or under:
• Mason Greenwood 
• Brandon Williams 
• Marcus Rashford 
• Scott McTominay 
• Daniel James 
• Andreas Pereira 
• Anthony Martial 
5/7 are academy graduates. pic.twitter.com/1XDv3Tv7LU
