Manchester United defeated Luton 2-1 to extend their winning streak in the Premier League to four games; Following a Luton error, Rasmus Hojlund scored after 36 seconds, then added another with a natural chested finish; Carlton Morris made a comeback.

With a thrilling 2-1 victory over Luton thanks to a record-breaking double from Rasmus Hojlund, Manchester United won their fourth straight league game and moved closer to Erik ten Hag’s top four.

After Amari’i Bell made a mistake, the 21-year-old clinically finished after 36 seconds to give United a two-goal lead. He then immediately chested in Alejandro Garnacho’s corner kick to become the youngest Premier League player to score in six consecutive games.

Luton should have equalized with many great opportunities as they put United under pressure, and Carlton Morris capped off an electrifying first fifteen minutes by pulling one back. Casemiro was unlucky not to be sent out after lunging at Ross Barkley while under a booking.

After the break, when Casemiro was substituted, United appeared more composed and had a good chance to end the match as both Bruno Fernandes and Garnacho circled the goalie for Luton but fell short.

Rob Edwards questioned the amount of extra time in the second half, saying, “I don’t know where that one came from.” The hosts battled for an equalizer until Barkley struck the bar with the game’s final kick. There are four minutes remaining as Man Utd is winning 2-1.

However, United persevered to close the gap on fifth-place Tottenham to just three points, and a top-five finish might be sufficient to secure a Champions League position for the following year.

Ten Hag said to Sky Sports in response to a question concerning Hojlund’s great goal-scoring form the striker has eight goals in his past seven games across all competitions that “we recruited him because he’s a strong character.” Despite being 21 years old, he has a great deal of endurance. As a striker for Manchester United, you require that.

“When he doesn’t score, he doesn’t become anxious or lose confidence. You can see it when you are on a run; he is now scoring and is in. He’s like that now. He exudes confidence, and I have no doubt that he will score more.
