Watch: Alejandro Garnacho scores incredible bicycle kick against Everton; pays tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo
Alejandro Garnacho scored his first league goal of the season
Everton hosted Manchester United at Goodison Park after the November international break. Erik ten Hag was in the stands for this match and needed three points from his team against Sean Dyche’s side.
The Red Devils took just three minutes to silence the Goodison crowd as Alejandro Garnacho got at the end of Diogo Dalot’s cross and scored a spectacular overhead kick to open the scoring for his side.
Garnacho followed this spectacular finish with the trademark Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘SIU’ goal celebration in front of the home supporters. He was then spotted pointing to the turf and copying the Portuguese icon’s ‘I am here’ celebration.
“I couldn’t believe I scored it to be honest, I didn’t see how I scored I just listened to the crowd and said oh my god. One of the best goals I’ve scored, I’m very happy,” said Garnacho in the post-match interview.
Manchester United managed to hold on to their lead in the first half and the score remained 1-0. This was also the fastest goal scored by Manchester United in the Premier League since March 2021.
