Rasmus Hojlund's scoring streak is fast becoming one of the best in Premier League history.

Hojlund scored in a sixth consecutive match at the weekend, becoming only the fourth player to do so for Manchester United in the competition, after Eric Cantona, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Cristiano Ronaldo

What's more, he is the youngest player (21y 14d) to do so for any Premier League club, breaking Joe Willock's record (21y 272d).

If Hojlund scores in his next match he would be only the 15th player in Premier League history to net in seven successive appearances. 

It would match for Hojlund the longest scoring streaks of Premier League greats such as Alan Shearer, the competition's all-time leading scorer, Thierry Henry and Sergio Aguero, as well as current superstars Mohamed Salah and Erling Haaland

If he scores in his next two appearances, the Dane would be one of only FOUR players with 8+ match scoring streaks, joining Jamie Vardy and Van Nistelrooy, both of whom have done it twice, and Daniel Sturridge.
