Alejandro Garnacho joins Man United cult hero Kiko Macheda in Premier League history books after last Fulham winner – 101 Great Goals

Manchester United starlet Alejandro Garnacho etched his name in the Premier League history books on Sunday.

The name of Argentine sensation Garnacho, of course, took its place in the headlines late tonight.

This comes after his latest exploits in the colors of the Red Devils.

Erik ten Hag’s troops were back in action a short time ago, making the trip to Craven Cottage for a showdown with Fulham.

United embarked on a desperate chase for the three points, having lost top-four pace in the English top flight due to a worrying defeat at Aston Villa last time out.

And, when all was said and done, getting back to winning ways is precisely what the Reds have gone on to do.

This Garnacho man, meanwhile, proved to be the star of the show.

After Dan James canceled out Christian Eriksen’s opener just after the hour mark in the English capital, the visitors’ explosive young talent was brought on the bench with just over 15 minutes remaining.

And its impact, for the second time in the space of a week, was quite telling.

Deep in injury time, Garnacho broke free from the Fulham backline, before choosing the far corner in clinical fashion, sparking chaotic celebrations among Manchester United fans and players:

And, as mentioned above, in the process, the Argentine made history.

According to statisticians Opta, at 18 years and 135 days, Garnacho tonight became the youngest player to score a Premier League winner in the 90th minute or beyond since former Red Devils cult hero Federico Macheda in 2009 .
