And it’s a win! After countable losses, Manchester United completed an incredible comeback with a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa. The comeback was sealed by Rasmus Hojlund, who became the hero by securing his first Premier League goal.
In the first half, John McGinn and Leander Dendoncker gave Aston Villa the early lead and so they led comfortably at the break. But short after, United recovered in the second half, and even though Alejandro Garnacho’s first goal was invalidated for offside, it gave the team fuel for the rest of the match.
Following that, Garnacho scored a goal that ended Manchester United’s goal streak of more than seven hours. With the remaining 20 minutes, Garnacho struck one more time to tie the game and set up an exciting finale.
Rasmus Hojlund then surprised every one by striking the game’s final blow with his first Premier League goal and an important win to Manchester United, and all of this in the closing seconds of the match. This triumph gave manager Erik ten Hag and his players much-needed encouragement and indeed put an end to United’s four-match losing streak.
