Rasmus Hojlund of Manchester United has created Premier League history.

Hojlund was chosen as the February Player of the Month for the Premier League on Friday.

The 21-year-old scored five goals and claimed an assist in the league that month, making him the player with the most direct involvement in goals scored.

In all four of his games in February, Hojlund scored, and United prevailed in each one. He scored goals in six straight games overall, becoming the youngest player in history to do so.

Furthermore, Hojlund was selected as the Premier League’s Player of the Month, becoming the first-ever Dane to do so.

In addition to Phil Foden, Joao Gomes, Pascal Gross, Rodrigo Muniz, Bukayo Saka, and Ollie Watkins, the striker was the only other United player to earn the award this season after Harry Maguire did so in November.

Hojlund has missed United’s last three games due to a muscular injury that has kept him out of action for the previous few weeks, including a 3-1 loss to Manchester City in the Manchester derby.

The forward hinted that he might be eligible ahead of United’s Saturday matchup against Everton at Old Trafford.

“That would be nice,” Hojlund told MUTV when asked about the progress he is making from the injury. “Let’s see, but I’m going to be back as soon as possible.

“I don’t want to put a date on it because it will just interfere or something, but I think we’re not far off.”

Reflecting on his excellent run of form Hojlund added: “I have to give credit to my teammates, they are the reason why I have performed this month.

“They have helped me, but from a personal point of view, I’ve done well, so I’m very happy and grateful.

“I think I always like to say I have confidence before going into the games.

“Of course, you have a little bit of momentum when you’ve scored and you feel in a good flow, you just want the next game to come. I don’t really care how they go in, I just want to get on the scoresheet.”
