Bruno Fernandes believes Alejandro Garnacho delivered his best-ever performance in Manchester United’s win over Everton and claims the Argentine ‘can be much better than he already is’.

Garnacho scored a contender for goal of the season with a stunning acrobatic effort to open the scoring in United’s 3-0 win over Everton on Sunday.

The 19-year-old has endured a difficult start to the season with several mixed performances on United’s left flank but Fernandes believes the winger has plenty of room for improvement.

When asked about Garnacho ahead of United’s Champions League clash with Galatasaray, Fernandes said: ‘He has that special talent for big moments to be decisive.

‘But I’m more happy for his work off the ball against Everton – it was, for me, the best game he’s had until now, it was amazing.

‘I think when he can put that together with his qualities to score goals and help the team up front, he’s going to be such a good player.

‘He’s already a great player, but I think for his age and for his talent, he can be much better than he is actually already.’

Fernandes also believes United possess plenty of match-winners in the squad alongside Garnacho.

‘I hope he can do it again against Galatasaray. It will be amazing to have another goal like that,’ the midfielder said.

‘But obviously we expect moments like that from Garnacho. He is a special talent that can have these kinds of moments in games that can help us to win games. We have such young players in front that in moments they can change the game to our side.

‘I think we had it in the past, even like most recently with Scott [McTominay] against Brentford at home when, not being a striker, he came in and had that moment inside of the box as a striker, the killer instinct that gives you the win.

‘You know, you need these kind of special things sometimes to win games and Garna has done it many times. Both Antony and Anthony Martial are capable to do it. [Facundo] Pellistri is also capable to do it. Rasmus [Hojlund] also can do it and often us from behind as midfielders and defenders. In some moment, we can have a ball where we can decide the game and we have to take it.’
