Rasmus Hojbjerg’s debut will have to wait until the next game.
Manchester United will host Nottingham Forest in the third round of the 2023-24 English Premier League (EPL) season at Old Trafford in Manchester, England, on Oct. 26 at 11 p.m. ET. United is 12th in the league with a 1-1 record (3 points), while Nottingham is 10th in the league with a 1-1 record (3 points).
In a pre-match press conference a day before the game, head coach Erik ten Haag gave an update on the injuries in the squad. First on Luke Shaw and Mason Mount: “They will be out for a while. Shaw will be out longer than Mount. Tyrrell Malacia will also be a few weeks before he comes back.”
Hoi Loon has also been ruled out for the Nottingham game. Ten Haag said: “Not tomorrow. He trained with the team in full today. We expect him to train throughout the week so that he can play next week.”
Hoi Loon is an ambitious frontline striker for Manchester United. He’s a striker with a lot of potential. He has already been nicknamed the Danish Holland and is a promising 토토 prospect. He joined Atalanta last summer and has 10 goals and four assists in 34 games across all competitions. In March, he caught the eye of the Danish national team, exploding for five goals in two games.
He has good physicality, with quick feet and the ability to press forward, utilizing his 6-foot-3 frame. He has good ball control and footwork for his height, but is criticized for his lack of aerial presence. Nevertheless, it’s clear that he’s exactly the type of player United need right now. The signing of Hoilearn will solve the problem of a frontline striker and give the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, and Bruno Fernandes more space and chances.
However, he was unable to take part in training immediately after the transfer. He suffered a back injury and spent some time rehabilitating, before returning to training a day before the Nottingham game to begin his preparations for the season. According to Van Gaal, he will not play against Nottingham, but should be available for the upcoming trip to Arsenal. As a result, United should expect Marcus Rashford to start up front against Nottingham.
