Manchester United overcame a tough Luton Town hurdle by beating them 2-1 at Kenilworth Road in a match that held the breath of all Red Devils fans until the final whistle was blown by referee David Coote. United took the lead in the first minute through Danish striker Rasmus Hoylund, before the same player scored his second goal in the seventh minute after a pass from Argentinian Alejandro Garnacho, and then Luton Town tried to get back into the game through several chances, but only managed to score one through Carlton Morris.

After half-time, manager Erik ten Hag tried to secure the result by taking off Casemiro and Harry Maguire and bringing on Scott McTomety and Jonny Evans, but neither team managed to find the back of the net in the second half to end the game with a 2-0 win for United.

Manchester United remain sixth in the race for the Premier League title with 44 points and are closing in on a European qualifying spot after a string of successive wins over Wolverhampton, West Ham, Aston Villa and Luton Town. While the latter are now on 20 points in 17th place after back-to-back defeats to Sheffield United and Manchester United.

Manchester United fans expressed their satisfaction with their team’s return to the right path, especially after the renaissance of their Danish striker Rasmus Hoyland, who is living a prosperous days by scoring 6 goals in the last 5 matches in the English League competitions and the Danish international stated after the end of the match that he thanks his teammates and his coach Eric ten Hag for showing him confidence and believing in him. Having not had the best of days in his first few games with the Red Devils and it took until December for Hoglund to score his first Premier League goal since United paid £72m to sign him from Italian club Atalanta in August, the 21-year-old has continued to work hard and has made his mark in the last six games in all competitions.

Luton Town manager Rob Edwards expressed his displeasure at the two goals his side conceded in the opening minutes of the game. “You can’t give United a two-goal lead like that, and we gave ourselves a mountain to climb,” he said, “We did our best and believed in what we were doing. I’m pleased with how we responded and how brave we were.”
Luton Town have a tough game against Liverpool at Anfield next Wednesday as they look to get back on track and move away from the danger zone. Meanwhile, United host Fulham on Saturday as they look to continue their winning ways and climb the table.
