Is Manchester United Rasmus Hojlund the next Erling Haaland?

IKEJA, Nigeria - Feb. 20, 2024 - PRLog -- Rasmus Winther Højlund is a Danish professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Manchester United and the Denmark national team. Højlund graduated from Copenhagen's youth academy, making his first-team debut for the club aged 17 in October 2020. Rasmus Hojlund is in red-hot form for Manchester United, with the Danish striker making Premier League history with a stunning run of goals.

The 21-year-old frontman was acquired by the Red Devils for £72 million ($91m) during the summer of 2023. He was thrown in at the deep end and initially found end product hard to come by in domestic competition – with his first five goals for United all coming in the Champions League. It took until December 26 and a meeting with Aston Villa for Hojlund to open his Premier League account, but he has not stopped scoring since then. A flurry of efforts at the start of 2024 have seen Hojlund find the target against Tottenham, Wolves, West Ham and Aston Villa.

He was back among the goals during a trip to Luton, with history being made in the process. Hojlund has, at the age of 21 years and 14 days, become the youngest player to score in six succesive Premier League games. That record has been snatched from Newcastle midfielder Joe Willock (21 years and 272 days) and ranks him above the likes of Erling Haaland, Romelu Lukaku and Thierry Henry, who all achieved the same feat at the age of 22. With confidence oozing out of him, Hojlund's first against Luton - with Harry Styles among those watching on from the stands - saw him race through on goal, round Thomas Kaminski and stroke into an empty net. He then displayed remarkable reactions and control when diverting a wayward volley from Alejandro Garnacho into the net via his chest.
