Welcoming Luton in a must-win match, MU attacked aggressively early and created many opportunities. In the 10th minute, Rasmus Hojlund penetrated and caught the ball at a distance of 3 meters, but unfortunately the point of contact was his thigh so he did not have enough force to beаt goalkeeper Kaminski.

The following minutes saw spearheads like Bruno Fernandes and Rashford have opportunities one after another but they were all ungainly. MU was then counter-attacked, but fortunately, Onana still played focused.
The peak of the deadlock was the situation where Hojlund gave Garnacho an open slot to face the goalkeeper in the 41st minute. Instead of shooting right inside the 5m50 box, he handled it slowly so that both the defender and the Luton goalkeeper could easily control it.
In the second half, MU continued to push the team to pressure and get a goal from a fixed situation. It was at the corner in the 60th minute that Lindelof was there just in time to catch the rebound before launching a dangerous shot to defeat the goalkeeper.

In the last minutes, although MU tried a lot, but did not have enough accuracy to score more goals. In the end, the Red Devils won their second consecutive 1-0 match in the Premier League. The 3 points helped Ten Hag and his team rise to 6th place in the rankings in the context that Newcastle and Brighton have not yet played.
