EPL: Rasmus Hojlund, celebrating his birthday, ignites Manchester United to a 3-0 victory.


Man United 3 - 0 Westham

Inspired by the reinvigorated Hojlund, Manchester United secured their third consecutive victory in all competitions, propelling them above West Ham into the sixth position. Breaking free from a slow start to his inaugural season with United after transferring from Atalanta, Hojlund initiated his birthday celebration in the 23rd minute at Old Trafford.

Receiving a pass from Casemiro, Hojlund, the Danish striker, exhibited clever ball control, creating space for a powerful drive that swiftly beat Alphonse Areola from just inside the area.

Having endured a goal drought in the league until December 26, Hojlund has now scored five goals in his last six games across all competitions.

Alejandro Garnacho found himself unmarked in the area for a 49th-minute shot that deflected off West Ham defender Nayef Aguerd and into the net.

Before kick-off, United manager Erik ten Hag and West Ham boss David Moyes placed wreaths on the pitch to commemorate the anniversary of the 1958 Munich air crash, which tragically claimed the lives of eight United players returning from a European Cup game in Belgrade.

While the current United team cannot be equated with the 'Busby Babes' who lost their lives in Munich, Ten Hag's squad paid tribute to their memory with an enterprising display reminiscent of the style that defined their predecessors.

In a fitting conclusion, it was Garnacho, United's brightest young star, who sealed the victory with a composed finish in the 84th minute.
