Rasmus Hojlund offers an enticing peek of the future as Manchester United’s dismal record persists.

Here are the key talking topics from Sunday’s Premier League encounter between Manchester United and Arsenal.

The appropriate reaction to the Manchester United starting lineup when team news broke yesterday was undoubtedly disappointment but not surprise.

Only one of the summer transfers started the game; Rasmus Hojlund and Sergio Reguilon were both chosen for the bench. The summer transfers had received a lot of attention in the lead-up to the game.

It was possibly the clearest example of how Erik ten Hag continues to believe that newcomers need time to adjust to his playing style as well as match fitness before they can be released.

When Hojlund came off the bench, he couldn’t have performed any worse than Anthony Martial, and the midfield still managed to work even without Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat.
