Garnacho’s breakout

The teenage winger has been one of the breakout stars in the Premier League over recent months following a string of brilliant performances for Man Utd in November.

He scored his first senior Man Utd goal on November 3 with the winner against Real Sociedad in the Europa League in the Basque Country. This made him the youngest foreign player to ever score for Man Utd in European competition.

Then, days later, he delivered two assists as Man Utd beat Aston Villa 4-2 in the EFL Cup. This made him the youngest player to have two assists in a match for Man Utd.

And he capped it all off by scoring his first ever Premier League goal, with the winner clinching a crucial three points against Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Garnacho once again starred last weekend as he assisted Marcus Rashford’s winner in the 2-1 Manchester derby victory over Man City.

Garnacho has two goals and four assists in six starts across all competitions in 2022-23.
