Greenwood will be pleased to get his goal tally up and running for the season as the 18-year-old looks to move on from an off-field incident in Iceland which saw him sent home from international duty for breaching Covid guidelines.

Solskjaer was full of praise for the forward but has urged Greenwood to improve his heading ability as he looks to shape his all-round game.

'He had a fantastic season last season,' Solskjaer said after the game. 'To get his goal was important for him, and Marcus, it is always nice for strikers to get that confidence and that feeling of scoring - to get that hunger again.

'He can play through the middle, I think as a young boy - not physically grown yet, sometimes it is nice to be facing forward instead of being the foil and being the battering ram.

'I scored most of my goals from just outside the posts as well, I wasn't in the middle.

'For him to be a number nine, though, he needs to learn how to head a ball. I keep telling him that and if he wants to do that he is welcome to come and practice with me.'

Solskjaer conceded he did not originally plan to introduce his trio from the bench but felt Luton pushed his side hard as he looks to get his players back to match sharpness.

But even with all the rotation, there was no room in the United squad for Chris Smalling.

The England defender spent last season on loan at Roma and looked set to return there on a permanent deal but Solskjaer revealed the club are waiting for what they consider to be an acceptable offer from the Serie A side.

'We had to go for it late on to try and get the goal,' he said.

'Then they bring a minimum of £150million off the bench, you leave yourself a little bit open.

'I think they needed that cushion and bringing those three on, once they turn the ball over, they murder you.

'It shows we are in a good place. I'm sick actually because 3-0 flatters them slightly because it looks like a comfortable win - but it was anything but.'
