# Initially facing criticism for a slow start in the Premier League, Rasmus Hojlund is now basking in praise as he demonstrates prolific form. The Manchester United forward has netted four goals in four consecutive league matches, earning him the distinction of being the youngest Red to achieve such a feat.
His recent performance at the Molineux not only secured a goal but also marked him as the youngest player to both score and assist in consecutive matches for the club—a record previously held by Cristiano Ronaldo.
At just 21 years old, Hojlund shows promise to lead Manchester United’s attack for years to come, provided his upward trajectory in development continues. Fans are increasingly optimistic about his potential contributions as he refines his skills and adapts to England’s top tier.
Michail Antonio of West Ham United, speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football panel, offered praise for Hojlund, emphasizing his all-around contribution beyond goal-scoring prowess.
“I admired his performance earlier in the season,” Antonio remarked about the young Dane. “Scoring goals is crucial for strikers, but it’s not the sole measure of their value; it’s also about their impact on the team. Hojlund brings physicality, involvement of teammates, and now, goals.”
“The quality of his recent goal was evident. The feint to set up his right-footed shot was exceptional. I genuinely rate him. Strikers face droughts, but belief in oneself and seizing opportunities are key. Hojlund’s journey with United wouldn’t be possible if he couldn’t find the net,” Antonio concluded.
