Manchester United Defeat Luton In Vital Win

Manchester United scraped past Luton Town with a 2-1 win in their hunt for Champions League football next season.

The away side got off to the perfect start when Amari’i Bell’s poor back pass was latched on to by Rasmus Højlund who went round the goalkeeper to slot home after 36 seconds. This was the quickest away goal in Premier League history for Manchester United.

United doubled their lead 6 minutes later. Alejandro Garnacho’s volley from the edge of the box was guided home cleverly by Højlund with his chest to make it 2-0.

The game became frantic and Luton were able to half the deficit in just the 14th minute. Carlton Morris headed home a Luton cross with dominance to give the Hatters hope.

United were unable to create any clear chances for the remainder of the half and it was Luton who controlled the possession but were unable to create any clear chances.

Jonny Evans and Scott McTominay replaced Harry Maguire and Casemiro at half-time due to both picking up yellow cards in the first half.

The away side improved in the second half and missed a series of big chances to put the game to bed. Both Bruno Fernandes and Alejandro Garnacho went through one on one but missed both chances and Rasmus Højlund had a good chance saved to deny the Dane his first Premier League hattrick.

The home side pushed but we’re unable to create any big chances to equalise. Bruno Fernandes missed another big chance late on when his low driven shot flashed wide of the far post from close range.

The hosts did hit the crossbar through Ross Barkley from a corner in stoppage time but United were able to hold on to snatch the 3 points.

Luton remain a point above the relegation zone whilst United stay in 6th but have closed the gap on Spurs to just 3 points in 5th.
