Football pundit Chris Sutton has blamed Manchester United wingers Antony and Marcus Rashford for the difficulties faced by striker Rasmus Hojlund. The Scotsman believes that Hojlund’s lack of form is due to inadequate support from the flanks. Despite scoring five times in the UEFA Champions League, his overall performance in the Premier League has been disappointing.
Sutton expressed sympathy for Hojlund, stating that the wide players are not providing the necessary assistance for the striker to score goals at Manchester United. He specifically criticized Antony for his poor performance in the recent 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich, citing the Brazilian’s failure to connect with his teammates effectively.
United will face Premier League leaders Liverpool, and it is likely that Hojlund will be in action. Since joining United, Hojlund has scored five goals in 20 games, all of which came in the Champions League. Despite his success in Europe, he has yet to score in the Premier League in 12 appearances.
