Alejandro Garnacho wins Man Utd’s Player of the Month award | November 2022

But at Craven Cottage, despite being named among United’s substitutes, he showed that he didn’t need to start to make an impact. Joining the fray on 72 minutes, Alejandro constantly looked a threat on the left, with his trademark quick dribbling and intricate footwork causing a headache for the Fulham defenders.

But it was the Argentinian’s pace that proved to be the difference-maker in the dying moments at Craven Cottage, as he exchanged a quick one-two with Christian Eriksen before motoring beyond the helpless Bobby Decordova-Reid and slotting clinically beyond Bernd Leno.

As expected for a 93rd-minute winner, this goal prompted wild celebrations in the away end. Garnacho had notched his inaugural Premier League strike and clinched an important three points for United in our last match before the World Cup.

The performance against Fulham earned Alejandro his third Man-of-the-Match award of the month (after Real Sociedad, away, and Aston Villa). Erik has urged patience when it comes to the exciting Academy prospect, but he’s already starting to make a name for himself.
