Chelsea legend Ruud Gullit has claimed the reason Rasmus Hojlund is still yet to net a Premier League goal is because the player is being ignored during the games by his United teammates.

The pundit believes the Dane is in short of supply from his teammates who need to start picking him out with more regularity during games.

Speaking to Premier League Productions, the Dutchman was critical of some of the United players and questioned why they don’t pick out the Dane enough.

“I still think you have to get your striker on the scoresheet,” Gullit told Premier League Productions after United’s win over the Blades.

“Because if he gets on the scoresheet he gets confidence, then also the rest are looking for him all the time.

“They don’t look for him as much. And he’s in areas where you can have a look at him. You see too many players too eager to score themselves, they’re coming inside, they want to hit the target all the time.”
