Manchester United's Alejandro Garnacho stole the spotlight with a magical overhead kick in the third minute, propelling the visitors to a 3-0 victory over Everton in the Premier League. The 19-year-old's acrobatic leap met Diogo Dalot's cross, finding the opposite corner past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, followed by a celebratory pirouette reminiscent of Cristiano Ronaldo's style.

Garnacho's stunning strike drew comparisons to Wayne Rooney's iconic 2011 Manchester derby goal. United captain Bruno Fernandes praised the Argentine's exceptional talent, expressing high expectations for his future performances.

Erik ten Hag's United climbed to sixth in the standings with 24 points after 13 games, showcasing a remarkable turnaround. On the other hand, Sean Dyche's Everton, already 14th before a 10-point deduction for financial rule breaches, now languishes second-bottom with four points.

Marcus Rashford extended United's lead with a penalty in the 56th minute, awarded after VAR ruled a foul on Anthony Martial by Ashley Young. Fernandes handed the penalty duties to Rashford, boosting his confidence as he secured his first goal since September 3.

In the 75th minute, Martial sealed the victory by skillfully chipping the ball over Pickford after receiving a pass from Fernandes.

United, rebounding from their worst start in 61 years, has won five of their last six games, boasting a league-best performance with five wins and 15 points since the beginning of October.

Despite Everton's attempts, including Dominic Calvert-Lewin's shot saved by Andre Onana and Dwight McNeil's clearance off the line by Kobbie Mainoo, they couldn't break United's dominance. The Toffees, facing a points deduction protest from fans turning Goodison into a sea of pink, struggled to capitalize on chances.

Everton manager Sean Dyche acknowledged the challenges, noting the impact of the points deduction and emphasizing the need to focus on away games amid ongoing appeals. The Toffees remain just above bottom side Burnley, who have fewer home points this season.
