Rasmus Hojlund scored a first-half brace as Manchester United defeated Luton Town 3-2 in the Premier League.

Hojlund has been in great form lately for United in the league and has now scored in six consecutive Premier League games after his brace against Luton Town. Hojlund scored his first goal of the game early in the game and added his second just minutes later after being set up by Garnacho. Luton Town pulled one back through Carlton Morris, who ensured the home side came back into the game.

In the second half, United had plenty of chances to put the game to bed through Bruno Fernanes and Garnacho but could not convert. Ross Barkley hit the crossbar in the final minute of the game from a corner kick as United managed to hold on to win the game.

Speaking after the win, Hojlund was asked if he meant to score with his chest. “Yeah, 100 percent. You can see I turned my body and flicked it in.“ I was surprised, to be honest—it was such a good goal. I have tried to train finishing like this with my shoulders. At the moment, I have a lot of confidence, and it goes in.” He said.
