Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Friday defended the professionalism of Mason Greenwood, saying the "whole English press" have targeted the Manchester United forward after he was sent home from England duty last month.

The 19-year old has made a big impact at Old Trafford since making his first-team debut in March 2019, scoring 17 goals last season and recently making his international debut.

Greenwood was sent home from his first England camp for breaching coronavirus protocols in Iceland and he has reportedly been warned about his behavior, including his time-keeping, by the club.

But Solskjaer, speaking at his pre-match press conference Friday, brushed that issue aside as the teenager prepares to make his return against Chelsea this weekend.

Solskjaer described Greenwood as a "fantastic boy to work with".

Greenwood missed United's impressive Champions League win at Paris Saint-Germain Tuesday with an unspecified issue, while captain Harry Maguire and new signing Edinson Cavani were other high-profile absentees.

Solskjaer said he expected all three of them to be available for the visit of Chelsea Saturday.
