MANCHESTER UNITED star Mason Greenwood kept his cool to slot home despite Liverpool’s Andy Robertson SCREAMING in his ear to try and put him off.

Greenwood, 19, was played in by a stunning diagonal ball from team-mate Marcus Rashford during United’s 3-2 FA Cup win at Old Trafford.

And the England youngster made no mistake as he raced down on Alisson’s goal – sweeping the ball into the corner of the net to level the game up at 1-1 in the 26th minute.

Rashford’s vision enabled him to swing the ball into Greenwood on the right – narrowly beating the despairing leap of James Milner.

And after trapping the ball on his chest, Greenwood had to contend with an off-putting loud shout from retreating Scotland captain Robertson.

With fans still barred amid the coronavirus pandemic, the former Hull man’s unique tactics were clearly audible to viewers at home.

Greenwood celebrated by waving at the camera in a gesture aimed at the Red Devils fans watching on.

After the game, he tweeted an image of his celebration with the caption: “Hi United fans I hope you enjoyed that.”

The teenager turned provider for Rashford after the break to add an assist to his efforts before boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hauled him off for Fred in the 66th minute.

The Norwegian revealed he was delighted with his side’s ‘brilliant’ performance as they set up a fifth-round tie against West Ham.

Solskjaer told BBC Sport: “Brilliant – you know when you go a goal, down the reaction of everyone was really good.

“We played some really good stuff, good goals, we have to defend well against them and we managed to react well and of course, towards the end, there were some moments but we kept them away.

“Great goal, good free-kick. When you leave [Bruno Fernandes] out like I did today, he stayed about 45 minutes after training yesterday shooting free-kicks so I was pretty confident he could score one if he got the chance.

“He’s never happy with me when I tell him to go inside after training when he’s playing the next day so he got some practice yesterday.

“Marcus [Rashford] has played up front, down the right and left and we felt if we could switch the ball early today we could attack them because Liverpool defend on the front foot so we have to be quick on the ball – we did that well.”
