Man Utd's Danish striker has finally found his feet in England, scoring six goals in his last seven appearances in all competitions. We're backing the in-form Hojlund to impress against Luton this weekend as United look to extend their unbeaten run.

Improving with each game

Hojlund seems to be improving with each game that goes by both in terms of his own ability and the chemistry with the rest of his teammates. Have Man Utd finally turned the corner now that Hojlund has adapted to life in England?
