Rasmus Højlund was one of Manchester United’s only bright sparks as they crashed to a 4-3 loss against FC Copenhagen in the Champions League.
Marcus Rashford was sent off minutes before the home side scored two crucial goals at the end of the first half, with Copenhagen ultimately fighting back to win 4-3 after a second-half Bruno Fernandes penalty handed United a momentary lead.
Speaking after the fixture, Rasmus Højlund has drawn positives from the game and highlights the red card as the main turning point of the fixture.
“If you don’t have a look at the result, if you only take the [opening] 20 minutes into account, I think we did quite well,” he told TNT Sports.
“I think we switched off a little bit [after the red card]. We were playing a game with one man down, so of course, it’s giving them belief and I know how the crowd can help the team here.
“It gave them a big boost. We did quite good at the beginning of the second half, we were composed on the ball and we kept switching the game a lot, got the penalty and got in front again.
“So it’s unfortunate we’re here, with the zero points from the game again.”
