Rasmus Hojlund’s goal against Tottenham has been chosen as Manchester United’s Goal of the Month for January.
Although United scored ten goals in January, Hojlund’s goal was the winner of the official ManUtd.com poll, which is cast by fans.
The Danish international took first place with 47% of the vote, easily defeating rivals Diogo Dalot and Kobbie Mainoo.
Second place went to Dalot’s FA Cup third-round goal against Wigan Athletic, while third place went to Mainoo’s first club goal.
The 20-year-old used a spin to defeat Pedro Porro, a Tottenham defender, and then he blasted the ball past goalie Guglielmo Vicario.
Sadly, in a match that finished 2-2, United let the lead slip twice against Spurs.
United’s defeat of a side they are vying with for a spot in the top four felt like a wasted chance to pick up momentum in the Premier League.
In February, Hojlund will look to add to his eight goals for the season. Tonight, United returns to play as the Reds visit Wolves.
Hojlund require extra assistance.
It is evident to everyone who has watched United this season that Hojlund frequently needs to generate opportunities for himself. The wingers have a tendency to score goals for themselves because they are aware of their own season totals, but our new center-forward is suffering as a result.
I occasionally ponder “what if” Harry Kane had been signed by us in the summer. He would struggle to score goals if he was only eating leftovers.
