17 of the best reactions to Alejandro Garnacho’s outrageous Puskas-worthy bicycle kick

It’s only November, yet Manchester United’s Alejandro Garnacho may have wrapped up the goal of the season award already – his outrageous bicycle kick against Everton will take some beating. 

With all the attention on academy starlet Kobbie Mainoo’s first start of the season, and the cauldron-like atmosphere at a raucously defiant Goodison Park, it took just two minutes for Garnacho made himself the story by scoring what was instantly described as one of the all-time great Premier League goals.

The Argentina international was yet to score this season and had been criticised amid Manchester United’s attacking woes this season. But this was a goal worth waiting for – Jordan Pickford had no chance after he connected beautifully with Diogo Dalot’s cross.

“I can’t believe it,” raved a gobsmacked Gary Neville, who was commentating from the Goodison Park gantry.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been in a stadium where I’ve seen an overhead kick as good as that, and I was on the pitch for Wayne Rooney’s in the Manchester derby.

“That was unbelievable what we’ve just seen. Wow. that is a magical goal.”

The moment inevitably sent Twitter (we’re never calling it X, don’t be daft) into raptures. We’ve compiled some of the best reactions to Garnacho’s goal:
