In the first 37 seconds of the game, Rasmus Hojlund scored the opener for Manchester United. A clearance from Casemiro went towards Luton Town defender Bell. Bell passed the ball straight to Hojlund, who then ran toward the middle of the pitch with the ball. Hojlund ran past Luton Town keeper Kaminski and then shot the ball into the empty net with his left foot. Hojlund became the youngest ever Premier League player to score in six consecutive games.

Rasmus Højlund has scored Manchester United's earliest-ever Premier League away goal. Six minutes later, Hojlund would score his brace with a bit of fortune.

Hojlund's chest deflects the ball to the opposite side of where Luton Town keeper Kaminski was standing. It looked like there would be more goals for Man United, but it quickly.
