Manchester United's Hojlund sets new Premier League record


Manchester United's Rasmus Hojlund became the youngest player in Premier League history to score in six consecutive games after scoring the opening goal against Luton Town.


Erik Ten Hag's side rallied from a two-goal deficit to beat Aston Villa 3-2 on Boxing Day, and his goal-scoring streak began with a superb shot. 


The former Atalanta player scored twice against Nottingham Forest and then added two more goals against TottenhamWolves, and West Ham to bring his season total to ten.


United recorded another remarkable away victory last Sunday as Harry Maguire made it five goals in five games by sweeping in a flick-on from Villa Park. 


The Dane scored United's fastest Premier League away goal in 37 seconds to set the tone for a thrilling first half in Bedfordshire, and the game continued to be exciting throughout.


Defeating Newcastle United midfielder Joe Willock, Hojlund became the youngest player to score in six consecutive matches—just two weeks before he turned 21.


Shortly after joining the Magpies from ArsenalWillock was on a hot run, and he was only 21 years and 272 days old. 


Popular among fans It is well-known that from March to August 2003, Ruud van Nistelrooy scored in ten consecutive top-flight matches for United. However, in November 2015, Jamie Vardy surpassed his league record with eleven successive goals. 


Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo, both former strikers for Manchester United, scored six goals each between March-April 1996 and March-April 2008, respectively. Recently, Hojlund became the fourth United player to achieve the same feat, scoring six goals quickly. He again skilfully chested home Alejandro Garnacho's shot, adding another goal for the Reds, and briefly putting them 2-0 ahead.
