Fans convinced 'Haaland and Mbappe would struggle for Man Utd' as damning Rasmus Hojlund stat comes to light | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED'S struggling ace Rasmus Hojlund has received the fewest passes out of any Premier League forward this season.

Hojlund joined United in the summer following a whopping £72million deal with Atalanta but he has yet to register a single goal in the Prem.

However, a damning stat from The Telegraph, proves that the striker is not the only one carrying blame for his goalless 12-match streak in the English top flight.

The Norway international has lacked serious support from wingers and creative midfielders at Old Trafford.

The 20-year-old has received less than 150 passes from his team-mates in all of his 798 minutes in the Premier League this term.

That is a far cry from the 390 passes Tottenham star Son Heung-min has received, which led to 10 goals in 17 appearances.

That makes Son the attacker with the most passes in the Prem and Hojlund the forward with the least.

This shocking finding has made fans believe that even Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland and Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe would struggle at United.

Haaland has received almost 200 passes to top the Premier League's scoring charts with a staggering 14 goals in 15 appearances.

But with Marcus Rashford and Antony struggling in United's wings, Jadon Sancho being axed and Bruno Fernandes failing to add creativity, fans believe even the best couldn't outperform Hojlund.

It is no surprise the player ahead of the Norwegian in the respective category for passes received is none other than Red Devils team-mate Anthony Martial.

One fan tweeted: "This is all the proof you need that Haaland and Mbappe would struggle playing upfront for United."

Another commented: "That sums up why he [Hojlund] has no goal in the Premier League."

A third wrote: "And he doesn't score goals? Who would have thought…"

This fan said: "But, but ‘he doesn’t have a PL goal yet'."

And that one stated: "Put Hojlund into a team with good crossers, and he will definitely be a top scorer by now."
