Rasmus Hojlund makes history for Man United against Luton Town

Rasmus Hojlund makes history for Man United against Luton Town

Rasmus Hojlund kept up his fine form with a quickfire double for Manchester United against Luton Town.

Rasmus Hojlund made history for Manchester United against Luton Town on Sunday afternoon after a rapid start to the game at Kenilworth Road.

The Dane put United up inside 37 seconds, capitalising on a mistake form Amari'i Bell and keeping his cool in front of goal.

Hojlund made it 2-0 mere minutes later, providing an outrageous chested finish to divert an Alejandro Garnacho effort into the back of the net.

There was a spell where the former Atalanta man was struggling to find the net in the Premier League but at the age of 21 and 14 days, he is now the youngest player to score in six consecutive games in the top flight.

He also now has eight goals in his last eight games having clearly found his confidence.

But Luton didn't fancy rolling over and pulled one back in the 13th minute, with Carlton Morris bravely heading past Andre Onana to make it 2-1.

Although he was prolific in the Champions League, Hojlund failed to score in his first 14 Premier League games.

The £72 million man finally opened his account against Aston Villa, bagging the winner in a 3-2 victory at Old Trafford.

Hojlund has never really looked back since and his impressive mentality mentality can be summed up by his reaction to the fee United paid.

"When the number [fee] first came, I know he was surprised," Christian Mouroux, sporting director of Hojlund's first club, told The Sun.

“But as soon as he had taken that in, he thought: ‘There must be a reason why someone wants to pay this for me.

"Someone has believed in what I am able to do, now it’s just a matter of me doing what is expected of me and what I know I can do in order to fulfil that expectation.’"
