Opinion | How Man Utd left fans at Old Trafford wanting more, in final home fixture before World Cup

We know the young winger is talented, but that was by far his best performance in a United shirt. He brought the crowd to its feet on several occasions, and drove the team up the pitch numerous times. One run brought back golden memories of Ryan Giggs’s twisty, slaloming swerves between defenders.


Of course, we’ll have to be patient with Garnacho. But he turned a big match in United’s favour, and that is no small achievement at his age. He also provides another opportunity for us to chant ‘Argentina!’ when Lisandro Martinez is off the pitch, so that’s a clear positive.


A short word for Scott McTominay, too. He might not bring the subtle passes or experience delivered by Christian Eriksen and Casemiro, but his spirit and presence can add so much to United’s performances, particularly at Old Trafford. And when he gets to run forward, he can produce exciting moments like the goal he scored last night, or the shot he crashed against the crossbar.
