Ole Gunnar Solskjaer names indispensable player after draw against Everton

After coming off the bench to rescue a point for Manchester United in the 1-1 draw against Everton, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that Mason Greenwood is becoming indispensable.

Everton went ahead in the first half through an own goal by Victor Lindelof despite appeals by United for a foul on David De Gea by Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Greenwood was called from the bench for Jesse Lingard and played up front alongside Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, before netting United’s equalizer in the 77th minute.

Speaking in a press conference after the draw against Everton, Solskjaer admitted that it's becoming hard not to start Greenwood, "Mason Greenwood is different class in and around the box. You’re not surprised when he scores goals.

"It’s fitting that it should be an academy player that scores in the 4,000th match [in a row in which United have fielded an academy product] and it makes it hard for me to leave him out.

"We’ve always had the DNA, with added players from other top clubs, and that will always be the philosophy here.

"We’re disappointed today but we have a quarter-final in the Carabao Cup to come on Wednesday and I have a big strong squad to choose from."
