Rasmus Hojlund made his Manchester United debut during the team’s heartbreaking 3-1 loss against Arsenal on Sunday.

The 20-year-old forward was introduced to the game mid-way through the second half and made a positive impression on his side.

He was involved in what looked like a winning goal, with his flick late in the game finding Casemiro, who then played through Alejandro Garnacho.

The teenager scored but was eventually ruled offside by VAR and then Arsenal would score two stoppage-time goals to secure the three points.

Whilst it was a disappointing result, Hojlund showed multiple impressive traits. His aggressive nature as a centre forward was shown during his countless battles with Gunners defender Gabriel.

After United won a corner in the game, Casemiro was seen giving Hojlund support with a grab of his shirt and a couple of words.

“He just says something in Spanish: ‘vamos’ or something like that,” Hojlund explained when speaking to his national press ahead of Denmark’s clash against San Marino.

“He was happy that I gave the team perhaps a slightly different dynamic than what you get from Martial.

“He’s maybe a little more technically strong and looks down the gaps where I like to take the fights. After all, he hasn’t seen me play before, so he told me he was pleasantly surprised to see me play.”

Martial has started the last two Premier League fixtures for United and had minimal impact in either.

The Denmark international could make his full debut for the club against Brighton next weekend.
