Manchester United striker Rasmus Hojlund made his debut for Manchester United in the second half against Arsenal.

The Danish striker came on in the 65th minute and immediately began putting himself about.

Rasmus Hojlund‘s debut had been delayed by injury. He looked fully fit in his second half cameo.

While there was no immediate goal to mark his debut, Hojlund showed encouraging signs, even if United were undone by poor refereeing decisions and two late goals.
