Alejandro Garnacho hits wonder-strike as Manchester United beat Everton, Aston Villa down Tottenham Hotspur


Alejandro Garnacho’s stunning goal was the highlight of Manchester United’s 3-0 win over Everton while Tottenham Hotspur was handed a third consecutive defeat at the hands of Aston Villa in the Premier League on November 26.

Garnacho ignited the match with an extraordinary display of athleticism and skill. At the third minute mark, Garnacho executed a breathtaking overhead kick that sent the ball soaring into the net, leaving Everton’s goalkeeper Jordan Pickford as a mere spectator to its brilliance.

This moment of magic was reminiscent of Wayne Rooney’s iconic goal against Manchester City a decade earlier, and it set the tone for what was to come.

As the second half unfolded, Manchester United continued to assert their dominance. A pivotal moment came in the 56th minute when VAR intervened to correct a decision on the pitch, leading to a penalty in favor of United. Marcus Rashford, who had been experiencing a dry spell since early September, was entrusted with the penalty by team leader Bruno Fernandes. Rashford made no mistake, confidently dispatching the ball into the net and doubling United’s advantage.

The final blow to Everton’s hopes came in the 75th minute, courtesy of Anthony Martial. A sublime pass from Fernandes found Martial, who elegantly chipped the ball over an advancing Pickford, prompting a mass exodus of Everton supporters from the stands, resigned to their team’s defeat.

The Red Devils, under the guidance of Erik ten Hag, found themselves comfortably positioned in the middle of the Premier League table, holding the sixth spot with a tally of 24 points from their 13 matches. Meanwhile, Everton faced the grim reality of lingering near the bottom, their situation exacerbated by a recent 10-point deduction due to financial irregularities, leaving them with just four points.

In a thrilling encounter at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Tottenham’s recent struggles continued as they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat against a resilient Aston Villa side. Despite taking an early lead through Giovani Lo Celso’s strike, which took a fortunate deflection in the 22nd minute, Spurs failed to capitalize on their dominance and were pegged back by a powerful header from Pau Torres just before the halftime whistle.

The second half was a tale of missed opportunities for the home team, with Aston Villa’s goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez pulling off a couple of crucial saves to deny Tottenham any chance of restoring their lead. The visitors then seized control of the match when Ollie Watkins latched onto a pass from Youri Tielemans and expertly found the back of the net, giving Villa a lead they would not relinquish.

Tottenham’s woes were compounded by an injury to Rodrigo Bentancur, who had to leave the pitch in the first half, adding to the team’s growing list of sidelined players. Despite hitting the woodwork through Pedro Porro and Ben Davies squandering a clear chance by heading over the bar, Spurs could not find an equalizer.

The victory marked a significant milestone for Aston Villa, who leapfrogged Tottenham to claim fourth place in the Premier League standings. Under the guidance of Unai Emery, Villa now sit comfortably with 28 points from 13 matches, level with Liverpool but ahead on goal difference. Meanwhile, Tottenham find themselves in fifth place, two points adrift, as they reflect on a third consecutive league defeat that dampens their top-four aspirations.
