Alan Shearer has backed Mason Greenwood to break his record as the all-time highest Premier League goalscorer after notching his tenth top-flight strike of the season for Manchester United. 

The 18-year-old thumped home the equaliser against West Ham on Wednesday night to rescue a draw for the Red Devils - his fifth goal in seven games since the football season restarted and there is plenty of excitement around his future. 

His seventeenth goal of the campaign saw him draw level with club icons Wayne Rooney and George Best for goals scored by a teenager across all competitions and has confirmed his place as one of the most prolific youngsters in the club's history.

And Newcastle legend Shearer has stoked the flames, raving about Greenwood's quality and tipping him to become one of the greats of the top flight.
