Man Utd stumbled again in their pursuit of Champions League football on Wednesday as they could only manage a 1-1 draw at home to West Ham, with Mason Greenwood clawing them back to level terms to earn a point.
Luckily for Utd, though, Greenwood was on hand to score the equaliser after half-time to take them to third in the table.
What was Greenwood's overall display like?
📷 Match Snapshot
Greenwood was one of the players who had a pop as he latched on to an Anthony Martial touch to drill a shot towards the bottom corner which was saved comfortably in the end by Lukasz Fabianski.
West Ham then took the lead through their awarded penalty.
⚽ ⏱️ 51' Throughout the first hour, Greenwood, Martial, and Marcus Rashford linked up fairly well with nice little touches in and around the penalty area. It was via another link-up between Greenwood and Martial which saw the home side equalise, with the Englishman scoring into the bottom corner with a truly impressive, rifled left-footed strike.
Overall, Greenwood had three shots on goal with two of them on target, while he enjoyed 49 touches of the ball.
His passing was impressive, too, as he completed 34/38 balls to team-mates with 23 of those being sent into the final third.
A worrying metric emerges from his duels, though, as he only won 2/10 on the night.
He was still by far United's best performer, and earned a 7.8 FC Rating for his performance.
〽️ Rating Week-on-Week
Greenwood was, for some reason which didn't work out, left out of the starting XI in United's FA Cup loss against Chelsea at the weekend. He was given 34 minutes off the bench to try and salvage things for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, but couldn't make much of an impact and finished with a 5.5 FC Rating.
Safe to say he enjoyed a significant improvement in performance to the aforementioned 7.8 FC Rating for the fixture against West Ham.

Man Utd have their Champions League fate in their own hands and will qualify for the tournament with just a draw against Leicester on Sunday. However, if they perform to the same level as against West Ham, they could be pipped to qualification by the Foxes.
Greenwood will start.
