MANCHESTER UNITED star Rasmus Hojlund had a furious exchange with Aston Villa fans and Douglas Luiz after rattling the crowd at Villa Park.
Hojlund helped United pick up a crucial 2-1 victory that saw Erik ten Hag’s men come closer to European qualification with only five points separating them from Unai Emery’s fifth-placed side.

The striker, who turned 21 only last week, opened the scoring for the visitors after just 17 minutes to register his fifth goal in five consecutive matches.
Villa levelled things up with Luiz in the 67th minute and looked set to salvage a point during the game’s dying minutes.
But super sub Scott McTominay struck once more as he scored the winner just four minutes before full-time.
Hojlund was hauled off in the second minute of stoppage time and slowly made his way off the pitch.
This came after the ex-Atalanta star celebrated McTominay’s finish by placing his finger over his nose to demand silence from the home fans.
Villa fans didn’t take kindly to the Denmark international’s slow pace and let him know about it.
The centre-forward responded by showing two fingers with his left hand and one with his right to remind the crowd of the scoreline before gesturing for silence once more.
That led to an even angrier reaction from the Villans’ faithful with some jumping out of their seats to scream at him.
Luiz was also furious as he grabbed his United opponent by the shirt before Jonny Evans came on to replace his young team-mate.
United fans, though, loved Hojlund’s spirit amid his continuing growth at Old Trafford following a slow start.
One fan tweeted: “Hojlund’s aura is out of this world.”
Another commented: “Making all the others upset hahaaaa. Love to see it.”
A third posted: “That’s the CR7 gene. We are building a team full of the [Cristiano] Ronaldo mentality.”
This fan said: “Hojlund got that dawg in Him…”
And that one wrote: “That’s what strikers look like.”
