Manchester United trailing 1-0 after Victor Lindelof’s first-half own goal, the substitute provided a timely equaliser with 10 minutes remaining.
The teenage star was fed the ball on the right edge of the Everton area and fed the ball through the defender’s legs and past Jordan Pickford into the corner of the net.
Former United captain Neville was keen to stress the quality of Greenwood’s ice-cool finish and compared the strike to that of the quality often seen during the days of Van Persie and the United manager, Solskjaer.
Moments after the equaliser, Neville said during commentary on Sky Sports: “Manchester United needed a goal, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needed a goal!
“Mason Greenwood, that is really really good. It’s got some van Persie about it. It’s controlled, composed. Ice cold when the ball arrives to him at the edge of the box.
