Alejandro Garnacho scores a spectacular bicycle kick for Manchester United’s lead

Fans see Alejandro Garnacho as a 'genuine' Cristiano Ronaldo supporter.

The breakthrough goal in the Premier League game between Everton and Manchester United at Goodison Park came just three minutes after kickoff, and it came from Alejandro Garnacho.

United’s Argentinian star scored what may be the ‘Goal of the Season’ with an incredible overhead kick to break down the home defense within minutes. Fans were eager to tweet about the goal since hardly one believed what they saw. But being a Cristiano Ronaldo fanboy, Garnacho just looked at the floating ball and decided to hit a bicycle kick past the stranded Jordan Pickford.

The goal placed the Red Devils ahead of the stunned Toffees, who were having difficulty swallowing that goal. Dalot floated the ball inside the box from the right wing, and Garnacho positioned himself well before putting it home.

Meanwhile, the goal was impressive enough on its own, but he added the ‘SIU’ celebration to cap it off. It was a major early surprise for the home fans, who were desperate for a result after their team’s 10-point deduction.

Fans think Garnacho‘s bicycle goal was influenced by the “Cristiano Ronaldo effect.” It’s no secret that the Argentine is a huge CR7 fan. So, scoring a bicycle meant that the Ronaldo followers would bring the Portuguese superstar’s legendary Champions League goal.

A supporter sent us the following message: “When Cristiano Ronaldo is your GOAT you score such beauties 😮‍💨😮‍💨” . Furthermore, many supporters used this chance to attack the Ronaldo-Lionel Messi argument, claiming that Garnacho selected the “right person to idolise.” Here are some of the reactions from fans:

Garnacho’s goal was the difference between the two teams at the half-hour mark. Everton loses another goal, making a comeback appear much more difficult. When Anthony Martial fell down inside the penalty area, a VAR check determined that it was a penalty, and Marcus Rashford’s calm head put United up by two goals. This is bad news for the home team, who were hoping for a success after the FFP breach controversy.
