Mason Greenwood may still be five months short of his 20th birthday but his achievements for Manchester United are continuing to astound many observers.

The homegrown talent matched Wayne Rooney's record of United goals in the Premier League as a teenager and equalled Marcus Rashford's overall tally in his teens with his double in the 3-1 victory over Burnley on Sunday.

But how does the in-form forward compare to the club's other legends of the past?

Mason is closing on a century of senior appearances already, which would make him only the fifth Red to hit the ton before reaching 20, following in the footsteps of Norman Whiteside, George Best, Ryan Giggs and Duncan Edwards.

In terms of his goalscoring prowess, he has rapidly established himself as one of the very best in our history in terms of his age. Only Northern Irishmen Whiteside, who hit 39, and Best, who claimed two fewer, now stand ahead of him in the list.
