# Manchester United’s Rasmus Hojlund Impresses in 1-0 Win at Burnley
Manchester United’s Rasmus Hojlund has been praised by Match of the Day’s Gary Lineker and Danny Murphy after a promising performance in their 1-0 win at Burnley. The Danish midfielder was a standout performer in the match, and his performance has earned him the praise of two of the Premier League’s most experienced pundits.
Hojlund joined Manchester United in the summer of 2020 from Danish club FC Midtjylland, and has since become an important part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad. The 21-year-old has made nine appearances for the Red Devils this season, and his performance against Burnley was one of his best yet.
The match was a tight affair, with both teams creating chances but unable to find the back of the net. However, it was Hojlund who eventually broke the deadlock in the 77th minute, scoring a stunning strike from outside the box to give Manchester United the lead.
Lineker and Murphy were full of praise for Hojlund after the match, with Lineker saying: “Rasmus Hojlund was outstanding today. He was a real driving force in midfield and his goal was a thing of beauty.” Murphy added: “He’s been a great addition to the Manchester United squad this season and his performance today was a real sign of things to come.”
Hojlund has been impressive since joining Manchester United, and his performance against Burnley is just another example of his quality. He is a dynamic midfielder who can create chances as well as score goals, and he has already become an important part of Solskjaer’s team.
It is clear that Hojlund has the potential to be a star for Manchester United, and with more performances like this one, he could become one of the Premier League’s top players. If he can continue to develop and improve, then there is no doubt that he will be a success for Manchester United.
