Hojlund scored after 37 seconds to go down in NHA history, MU played away at its best

Hojlund continues to become MU’s inspiration for victory in the Premier League.

MU struggled to defeat Luton 2-1 in round 25 of the Premier League , but this was still a successful match for Rasmus Hojlund when he scored both goals. More noteworthy, the Danish striker only needed 7 minutes to complete the double, of which the opening goal came in the 37th second.

Hojlund became the youngest player to score in 6 consecutive matches in the Premier League

The double goal helped Hojlund become the youngest player in Premier League history to “shoot” in 6 consecutive matches at the age of 21 years and 14 days, surpassing the old record of Joe Willock (21 years and 272 days).

It can be said that Hojlund is “transforming” rapidly to become the number 1 hope of MU’s attack. After a series of 14 “unsuccessful” matches, the 21-year-old player contributed 7 goals in 6 matches in the Premier League after Christmas (8 goals, 2 assists in 8 matches in all competitions).

On MU’s side, the opening goal at 37 seconds was the earliest goal scored by the “Red Devils” away from home in the Premier League. Not only that, they also experienced the fastest 2-0 lead in an away match in the top tournament “Land of Mist”.

Besides, MU reached 7 away wins in the Premier League this season, including 3 matches in 2024. Coach EriK Ten Hag and his team’s achievements are only inferior to Arsenal and Man City (8 wins).

Since the beginning of 2024, the “Red Devils” still maintain an unbeaten record in all competitions (6 wins, 1 draw). Although still ranked 6th in the Premier League (44 points/25 matches), the gap between MU and the top 4 in the Premier League has narrowed to 5 points.
