Rasmus Hojlund, a £64 million Premier League addition, is a “hell of a player” for Manchester United, but Erik ten Hag’s wingers need to do more to support the new addition.

Rasmus Hojlund, a £64 million Premier League addition, is a “hell

Although Rasmus Hojlund hasn’t yet played in the English Premier League, his teammates’ performances speak louder than his own as Manchester United’s new “number 11.”

The summer transfer from Atalanta has shown that he is a superb seizer of opportunities when they present themselves in the Champions League, especially after scoring twice with precise finishes against Galatasaray. That, at least in terms of the Premier League, is where the issue is.

No Premier League goal has been scored by Rasmus Hojlund yet.

Hojlund is now without a reliable supply line due to the subpar play of Marcus Rashford on the left and Antony on the right, as well as Jadon Sancho’s continued unavailability.

Ten Hag has to figure out a way to fully utilize his penalty-killing ability, even though there is obviously more to his game than goals.

In midweek, the Dane’s hold-up play and work ethic caught attention against former employers Copenhagen.

“I enjoy him.” The former midfielder for England and Liverpool, Danny Murphy, tells talkSPORT (October 25, 11am), “I think he is going to be a hell of a player.”

“You have to establish relationships, which can occasionally take some time. Having Antony on one side who is so predictable and has flattered to deceive does not help.

An impending Manchester derby

The Manchester derby this weekend would be the perfect opportunity for Hojlund to end his domestic impasse, with Man City the favorites at Old Trafford as Ten Hag’s team finds it difficult to generate momentum at both ends of the field.

Murphy continues, “They are far too easy to play against,” citing Sheffield United and Copenhagen’s multiple chances to score goals against the Red Devils.

And that is a result of a combination of the tactical strategy, the physicality, and the work ethic.

“They demonstrated their ability to defeat Man City in a special game last year.

They are extremely talented. But eight out of ten times, they lose games like this one.
