Manchester United forward Rasmus Hojlund to miss up to 3 weeks with muscle injury

Manchester United forward Rasmus Hojlund who has recently found his scoring rhythm in the Premier League will likely miss two to three weeks of play due to a muscle strain, the English club announced.

The club shared an update on their X stating, “Rasmus Hojlund has suffered a muscle injury which is expected to rule him out for two to three weeks. Wishing you a speedy recovery, Rasmus.”

After facing some challenges in the English top flight since his arrival, Hojlund—who joined United during the summer transfer window from Italian club Atalanta—has been in excellent goalscoring form lately, scoring in six straight Premier League games for Erik ten Hag’s team.

His performances in the UEFA Champions League were significant, as he scored five goals for the Red Devils before the giants were eliminated from the elite continental tournament in the group stages after coming last in their table.

Hojlund became the fourth United player to score in six straight Premier League games, joining legends Wayne Rooney, Eric Cantona, and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ruud Van Nistelrooy, a United legend, held the record for the longest goal-scoring streak with 10 consecutive games before being surpassed by Leicester’s Jamie Vardy, who scored in 11 consecutive games for the Foxes during his heyday.
