Moment Mason Greenwood nutmegs referee before Man United third goal vs Burnley

Footage shows Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood nutmegging the centre referee Jonathan Moss during the Premier League clash against Burnley.

Man United opened the scoring in the second half through a superb finish from Mason Greenwood but it would be unfair not to give credit to Marcus Rashford for his super run down the left-flank and Bruno Fernandes acting dummy to let Greenwood get the job done.

Two minutes later, James Tarkowski put Burnley back into the game with a fine header after getting the better of Harry Maguire in an aerial challenge.

Late on in the game, Mason Greenwood scored his second goal of the night and United’s second goal against the Clarets after an excellent right-foot strike.

Whilst Manchester United were leading 2-1 in the additional time, Paul Pogba was managing the game time down the right flank of Burnley and was harshly brought down, and of which Jonathan Moss awarded United a free-kick.

Manchester United would go on to score their third goal in the additional minutes through a close-range effort from Edinson Cavani.

Mason Greenwood was impressed with his performance and his two goals against Burnley.

“I like to do that, cut inside like that,” Mason Greenwood told Sky Sports. “I did it last season but you have to mix it up so defenders don’t catch you out.

“Happy with both of my goals.”
