Manchester United star Alejandro Garnacho left captain Bruno Fernandes speechless with his wonder goal against Everton
Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes failed to describe the amazing goal from his team Alejandro Garnacho against Everton. United defeated the Toffees 0-3 at Goodison Park to continue their winning form in the Premier League.
Garnacho scored the beautiful goal in the third minute of the game after Diogo Dalot swung a deep cross. The Argentinian ran a bit backwards to connect a beautiful overhead kick from about 15 yards away from the goal. The goal reminded many United fans of the iconic Wayne Rooney’s bicycle kick against Manchester City on February of 2011.
Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford could only witness the strike as the overhead kick found the top-right corner, silencing the crowd. United added two more goals with a penalty kick from Marcus Rashford and the final goal from Anthony Martial.
The Manchester giant’s attack department faced scrutiny for the lack of goals in the Premier League before this game. However, the attackers showed their clinical finishing at Goodison Park and silenced their critics with Garnacho leading the charge.
The Red Devils are currently four points behind the fourth-place Aston Villa as they take another positive step forward. United started the season horribly as they have lost nine games already from 19 matches in all competitions.
Speaking to Match of the Day (h/t BBC), Fernandes praised the Garnacho’s sublime goal while stating that he expects more. He said:
“Superb – something amazing and I have no words to describe it. It is out of this world. Special from a special kid. I still expect more from him we are aware of his capabilities we know what he can do in football.”
Last season, United manager Erik ten Hag used Garnacho as an impact substitute to exploit tired opposition with his pace. The 19-year-old has moved up the pecking order with poor performances from the likes of Antony providing opportunity.
Garnacho played on the left wing which is usually occupied by Rashford whereas Rashford played as a right winger. The strategic change is a part of new formations and tactics deployed by Ten Hag in the last few games.

Fernandes expects bigger things from Garnacho and the wonderful goal against Everton backs the demand from the captain. The Argentine need to produce more impactful performances like the one he gave today.
United travels to the volatile RAMS Park Stadium as they face Galatasaray in a must-win Champions League game. Garnacho needs to continue his goal-scoring form alongside his attacking teammates if they hope to achieve any positive outcome there.
