Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has said he is not worried about the form of Hojlund.

Hojlund is yet to score a Premier League goal – only scoring 3 goals in 13 matches so far for United, with all goals coming in the Champions League.

Ten Hag has said that the team’s playing style hasn’t favoured Hojlund, but has backed the young striker who has a strong character to find form in no time.

When asked about what he feels about the form of Rasmus Hojlund, Erik ten Hag said: “I think he [has integrated] very well.

“He has scored already three goals in the Champions League, which is very good for an integration period. I think as a team we can be better in possession so we can create more and better chances and that will also give our offensive players more opportunities to score goals.

“What we have to work on is a stable starting XI or at least 12 or 13 players and then the routines will be better and we will create better chances. But as I said, social-wise, I think he has integrated very good in the team and in the club.

“From a football perspective, he has already scored three goals in the Champions League which is a very good performance and from hereon he has to take it on and improve.

“That is the character of Rasmus. He wants to improve every day so it is lovely to work with him, with such characters.”
