However, a chorus of boos could be heard inside Old Trafford in reaction to Erik ten Hag’s decision to withdraw the Danish forward.

Hojlund was subbed off in the 64th minute, with United trailing 2-0, and replaced by Martial.

The 20-year-old had thought he had opened his account for the Red Devils earlier in the match.

Following a cut-back from Marcus Rashford, Hojlund found the back of the net only for the goal to be disallowed.

A VAR review adjudged that the ball had gone out of play before Rashford could pull it back.

Hojlund made his much-anticipated first start following his £72million arrival from Atalanta.

Fans were made to wait to see their new striker in action due to an injury Hojlund suffered in pre-season with the Serie A side.

He finally got his first taste of the Premier League off the bench against Arsenal before the international break.


His wait for a first win continues, though, with Brighton cruising to a 3-1 win.

Goals from Danny Welbeck, Pascal Gross and Joao Pedro put the visitors in control before Hannibal Mejbri pulled one back for United.
