Manchester United can't stop winning

Manchester United's good form was put to the test here, and thanks to summer signing Rasmus Hojlund, the 13-time Premier League winners passed with flying colours.

This historic venue hadn't hosted the Red Devils in a league match since 1992. 

However, within the first minute, a defensive error by Amari'i Bell gifted Rasmus Højlund a goal, marking United's fastest-ever Premier League away goal. 

The Danish striker becoming the youngest player to score in six consecutive games, added another in the seventh minute to completely silence the home support.

Despite Luton's comeback with Carlton Morris scoring, the Red Devils defended expertly in the final stages to secure a 4th consecutive league victory for the first time this season.
