Antoine Griezmann scored twice between an Alvaro Morata header but the team was pegged back by the visitors, having gone down to 10 men after Stefan Savic was sent off after 38 minutes.

Greenwood put in an impressive performance from the right wing, evoking reactions from Manchester United fans.

Antony, who is currently Erik ten Hag's first-choice option for that position, has failed to hit the heights expected of him when the club forked out £86 million to sign him last year.

Griezmann's sentiments on Greenwood

So good was his performance that Griezmann admitted afterwards that he was a constant headache for them.

"Mason Greenwood was really causing us problems in the second half; we couldn’t stop him and it cost us the game," he said as quoted by Tribal Football.

United fans want Greenwood to return

Manchester United fans are now up in arms, demanding the teenage striker be given a chance next year after the conclusion of his charges.

@KwasiGazy said;

"Manchester United fans watch Antony play awfully and still think we don’t need Mason Greenwood."

@Dalia Khashan said,

"Watching him and then remembering Antony makes me cry."

@UTD_Doc said;

"He can singlehandedly change the trajectory of our season."

With the draw, Atletico Madrid leapfrogged Barcelona into third while Getafe are eighth on the La Liga table.

Essien heaps praise on Greenwood

Sports Brief also previously reported that Greenwood received rave reviews from Michael Essien after his stunning performance versus Sevilla.

Notably, the Chelsea legend praised the Getafe ace's remarkable display, highlighting his rare proficiency with his right despite being a left-footer.
