Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Mason Greenwood and David de Gea after their narrow victory over Wolves.

The Norwegian coach believes the 19-year-old will become a world-class player for his club and country after he scored a decisive goal against

Wolverhampton Wanderers

.

The Red Devils beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 thanks to a late

Mason Greenwood

goal at the Molineux on Sunday.

The England international is now the second teenager, after

Liverpool

’s Robbie Fowler, to score a goal in the opening three matches of a Premier League season.

Despite his fantastic start to the season, Greenwood is not included in England squad for the upcoming international break.

But

Solskjaer

believes

Gareth Southgate

has made the right decision for the youngster's development.

"The boy is special. Mason's a player we [Southgate and himself] can both see being a top player for Manchester United and England,"

he told Sky Sports

.

"Of course, he wants to play for his country but at the moment, I think the best for him is to just focus on his everyday football.

"I'm sure he'll come good for England in the end."

Solskjaer also was full of praise for David de Gea, who made five saves at Molineux to keep the hosts at bay.

"David's found his determination and desire. He's come back with loads of energy,”

added Solskjaer, who was taking charge of his 100th league match for the Red Devils

.

"You can see that in the work he's doing every single day.

"The second save from that corner is special. That's not just hit him; that's reaction and he's got a strong arm to it."
