Greenwood scored 12 goals in 18 Premier League 2 appearances, earning a debut as Marcelo Bielsa handed him 32 minutes against Crawley in the FA Cup.

Now, the teenager is regularly involved in first-team training at Thorp Arch, where he’s just embarrassed his teammates with a phenomenal dribble.

The seven-second footage shows Greenwood breezing past three players – leaving one on their backside – before slotting the ball away.

If Bielsa was watching, we’re sure he enjoyed what he witnessed.

However, Greenwood is very close to a breakthrough, and this could be the season he announces himself.
