Manchester United are treating every game like a cup final as they target the season’s run-in admits Mason Greenwood.
The Red Devils are in the midst of a 16 match unbeaten run and have their sights set on the Champions League.
United have been at their free-flowing best as of late and scored 11 goals in their last three outings as they prepare to face Aston Villa.
Mason Greenwood has scored three in his last two with his performances personifying the confidence the looks to be running through the team.
And the teenager, along with his team-mates, has taken the view that every game is a big game.
“Every game is huge and like a final to us,” he told the club’s official website.
“It’s what we’re saying, every one is like a final and, at the end of the day, we’ll play it like a final. We want to get into the finals in the cup and get into the top four in the league as well.
“Every game is a big game because I’m sure they’re fighting for something and we’re fighting for something so it’ll be a tough game when we play Villa.
“Everyone is confident. Even the lads coming on are slotting in and everyone is doing a job in the team, the whole squad.
“So confidence is high. In training, there are smiles and everyone is enjoying themselves. It’s a good base to work from and a good place.”
Greenwood has become part of a lethal front three that also includes Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
Bruno Fernandes in a creative midfield role has also been vital and the academy graduate admits they are all pushing each other to improve.
“It’s amazing to have those kinds of players around you,” he added. “You can see what they’re doing in training and you’re trying to replicate it or you just look at them on the sideline and you’re watching what they’re doing and you can add that to your game as well.
“Everyone’s learning off each other really, there’s no negative vibes. Everyone’s looking around, watching each other and rubbing off on each other. We’re playing better from it, so it’s good to see.
