Manchester United celebrated an encouraging end to last season, lifting the FA Cup thanks to goals from of two of their most promising youngsters, Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo. The teenage pair are considered the future by many, alongside 21-year-old Rasmus Hojlund.

The Dane managed 16 goals in all competitions for United, including 10 in the Premier League. After failing to find the target in the opening 18 league games of the season, there were concerns that he had failed to make the grade, before a run of seven goals from his next six padded those stats and allayed fears. Red Devils legend Dwight Yorke understood the difficulties the player had to overcome at first.
