Manchester United star makes Rasmus Hojlund prediction

Ahead of the tie, Manchester United midfielder Casemiro has made a Rasmus Hojlund prediction United fans will love:

“At the end of the day, he’s just a kid, so we shouldn’t be putting a lot of pressure on him,” the Brazil midfielder said on the club website. “A lot of people think that he should be coming in and scoring 30-odd goals right away.

“He’s still young and this is his first season in the Premier League.”

“I was really happy with his attitude,” Casemiro said. “The thing is, it’s really difficult when you come on in such a demanding game, as games against Arsenal are.

“When he entered the fray he contributed a lot, changing our dynamic, so I tried to express to him just how I was feeling.

“He’s definitely playing better in every game and he’s working really hard. Rasmus is a dedicated lad and he’s keen to kick on. “He’ll be a great player for this club and, with the ambitions he has, he could define an era at Manchester United.”

Hojlund missed United’s 2-1 defeat away to Nottingham Forest last time out through illness but will be available for Monday’s match at the DW Stadium.
