  • Rashford links up with Hojlund
  • Wants to get in tune with striker
  • Pair likely to be fielded together often

WHAT HAPPENED? With just two victories from their first five Premier League games, the Red Devils have had a terrible start to the new season. In the meantime, they suffered a tumultuous 4-3 defeat to Bayern Munich in their first Champions League group game on Wednesday. One of the few shining lights getting supporters through the tough period is the new £72 million signing Hojlund, who opened his account for United against Bayern in the week.

WHAT THEY SAID: Speaking to MUTV, the England international said: "We spoke [with Hojlund]. We did a lot of work off the field, probably without the staff knowing. I want to understand his game and he wants to understand mine as quickly as possible.”

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Rashford was one of United's shining lights last season, scoring 17 goals in the Premier League, and will hope to strike up a swift partnership with Hojlund as United look to climb the league table.
