UEFA Europa League Report: Manchester United v AZ Alkmaar 12 December

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer mentioned man-of-the-match Mason Greenwood in the same breath as a young Wayne Rooney following the teenager's stunning Europa League double for Manchester United.

The rest of the attacking unit will also be in for a tweak as youth stars Tahith Chong and Angel Gomes are likely to get the nod on the flanks, much like the game against Astana.

Having been heavily linked with Real Madrid in the summer, Pogba has not played any part for Manchester United since 30 September due to an ankle injury.

December has shaped up to be one of Solskjaer's best since becoming permanent manager in March.

He joked he was a bit jealous, congratulating Greenwood for his display.

However, the constellation is not the source of the meteors, and not the only point viewers can look to when searching for them. Geminid meteors tend to be few and far between at early evening, but intensify in number as evening deepens into late night.

Fred was hit by a missile as he went to take a second-half corner in the 2-1 Premier League victory at the Etihad Stadium, where a fan appeared to aim a monkey gesture at the Brazil global and team-mate Lingard.

The home side were not done as Greenwood collected a pass from Mata two minutes later and drilled beyond Bizot from an acute angle on the right. Of course he is ready to play in the Premier League'.

"There wasn't any cups flying or anything", he said of the half-time team talk.

"He is working hard to get fit and hopefully we can get him back on the pitch".

'We were slow off the ball first half, we were too rash with the ball, just giving the ball away'.
