Man Utd suffered serious injury blow with Rasmus Hojlund set to miss 3 weeks including FA Cup clashes with Man City

Rasmus Hojlund will not be able to play for up to three weeks because he hurt a muscle.

The scorer for Manchester United got hurt at a bad time because he was just getting better at scoring goals.

With his two goals against Luton, Hojlund has now scored in six straight Premier League games.

His run began on Christmas Day, when he scored his first goal in the United Kingdom in an exciting 3-2 win over Aston Villa.

In Premier League history, the 20-year-old broke the record by becoming the youngest player to do so. However, he will now have to sit out for a while.

This week, manager Erik ten Hag lost Luke Shaw for probably the rest of the season. He said, “It’s a small injury, two to three weeks. That’s the risk of playing high intensity and training.” “He only hurt himself a little, but he has to wait two or three weeks.”

For United, that means he will miss their important FA Cup match against Nottingham Forest on Wednesday and the Manchester Derby the following Sunday.

The Red Devils have five games left before the next month’s international break. The Dane might not be able to make it to any of them.

Ten Hag doesn’t have many choices for who to lead the line instead of Hojlund since Antony Martial is hurt, so Marcus Rashford might have to play in the middle.

Hjorthund has lost a lot because he has scored seven goals in the last six games.

His record means he scored the most goals in the Premier League in 2024. All of his goals came in games that United either won or tied.

And the way he came back from early season questions says that Hojlund has now adapted to the Premier League, and maybe even faster than many of the League’s all-time greats did when they first came to England to play.

Nine players from outside of the British Isles are in the top 25 all-time Premier League goals.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Thierry Henry, Sergio Aguero, and Sadio Mane are the only ones in that group who scored more goals in their first Premier League season than Hojlund has already.
