Hojlund better than Haaland this season in this fundamental striker statistic

2 There has been much chatter around Manchester United's PS72m summer recruit, Rasmus Hojlund, this season.

In many ways it is difficult to properly assess his first season in England.

On the one hand he has gone for long periods of the season without scoring, famously taking until Boxing Day to open his account in domestic football.

Moreover, he has only scored two goals since the 18th of February, where he grabbed a brace against Luton Town.

However, he did score five goals in the Champions League and is still the competition's fifth top scorer despite not playing in it since December when United were knocked out in the group stages.

In addition, he has found the back of the net 15 times in all competitions and is the club's joint top goalscorer with Bruno Fernandes.

Last night the young Dane came off the bench to grab a crucial third goal which gave the Red Devils the cushion late on to eventually win the match 3-2 and keep their European hopes alive to the final game of the season against Brighton.

Statman Dave brought up an interesting statistic which perhaps highlights how the former Atalanta striker is not getting the praise he deserves in his first season in England.
