A significant accomplishment was accomplished by Hojlund, who was celebrating his 21st birthday at the time.
He became the youngest player in the history of the Red Devils to score in four consecutive games, providing his fifth goal in the last six matches.
As a result of this effort, Erik ten Hag’s team was able to win their fourth game in a row in all competitions in 2024.
An important occurrence in the game took place when Garnacho’s shot was deflected off of Nayef Aguerd.
This came immediately after Emerson Palmieri, who was on the opposite end of the field, made an unexpected miss.
West Ham had a difficult time delivering the final ball, despite the fact that they displayed a dynamic offensive effort.
The efforts of West Ham continued to decrease as the game went, and Garnacho took advantage of another mistake made by Kalvin Phillips, the new player that the Hammers have acquired.
Garnacho scored a fine low finish beyond Lukasz Fabianski, who came on as a substitute for the injured Alphonse Areola at halftime. Scott McTominay and Hojlund took advantage of the situation, applying pressure to Phillips and setting up Garnacho for the goal.
The injury to Lisandro Martinez, who was attempting to play with a knee condition that he got after a confrontation with Vladimir Coufal, was the only setback that Manchester United had. Martinez limped off the field following the injury.
Ten Hag’s club moved up from eighth place to sixth place in the league rankings as a result of this victory, surpassing both Brighton and West Ham in the process.
On the other side, West Ham is still having a difficult time, as they have not yet achieved victory in any of the contests since the beginning of the new calendar year.
