Rasmus Hojlund scored his first Premier League goal for Manchester United in his last appearance before illness, which saw us come back from 2-0 down to win 3-2.
Casemiro, who has been ruled out with injury since the beginning of November but is now back in training, has sung the praises of our centre-forward and implores fans to be patient with the 20-year-old.
At the end of the day, he’s just a kid, so we shouldn’t be putting a lot of pressure on him. A lot of people think that he should be coming in and scoring 30-odd goals right away. He’s still young and this is his first season in the Premier League.
I was really happy with his attitude. The thing is, it’s really difficult when you come on in such a demanding game, as games against Arsenal are. When he entered the fray he contributed a lot, changing our dynamic, so I tried to express to him just how I was feeling.
He’s definitely playing better in every game and he’s working really hard. Rasmus is a dedicated lad and he’s keen to kick on. He’ll be a great player for this club and, with the ambitions he has, he could define an era at Manchester United.
