Supporting Manchester United these days is akin to a roller coaster ride in the world of football. The emotions swing dramatically from one game to the next.

After the midweek triumph in the Carabao Cup against Crystal Palace, fans were buzzing with optimism for the season. Manchester United displayed scintillating football, cruising to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Roy Hodgson’s side.

However, the Premier League rematch couldn’t have been more different. Erik ten Hag’s team put on a lackluster performance, resulting in their fourth league loss of the season. It was a harsh reality check for the fans.

Nonetheless, hope still lingers. Some players showcased moments of brilliance, with one, in particular, standing out despite the challenging circumstances.

Peter Schmeichel’s Take on Rasmus Hojlund
Peter Schmeichel offered glowing praise for Rasmus Hojlund, even in the face of defeat.

“I would say he was involved in 90% of what was good about the Manchester United side,” Schmeichel commented during the Premier League’s Goal Rush panel discussion.

“The problem is that the team hasn’t had a real number 9 for a very long time, so it will take time for them to get used to it. He makes the right purchases, he remains patient, but he is not served properly.”

An Intriguing Perspective
Schmeichel’s perspective seems on point. Manchester United has lacked a consistent number nine leading the attack under Ten Hag’s management, necessitating an adjustment period to maximize Hojlund’s potential.

The responsibility lies not only with Hojlund but also with the rest of the team to adapt to his style of play. Encouragingly, Hojlund has already displayed his ability to find spaces and make a positive impact on the games he’s featured in.

As the team becomes more attuned to utilizing the 20-year-old talent correctly, the goals are likely to flow in abundance – or so fans hope.
