Alejandro Garnacho has hit back at critics of Manchester United after his impressive performance in a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa on Boxing Day. Garnacho scored twice in the match, helping his team secure a crucial win.

United’s Epic Comeback

The match started poorly for Manchester United as they fell behind 2-0 to Aston Villa at Old Trafford. However, the team staged an epic second-half comeback, with Garnacho scoring two goals and Rasmus Hojlund netting the winning goal in the 82nd minute. This victory was especially significant for Hojlund, as it marked his first Premier League goal.

Responding to Criticism

Manchester United had been struggling to score goals in their previous matches, including a defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League and a humiliating 3-0 loss to AFC Bournemouth. The team’s attacking players had faced intense criticism for their lack of goals. Garnacho took the opportunity to respond to these critics after his standout performance.

Garnacho stated, “Too many people talk about the strikers at United not scoring goals. But today you saw Marcus Rashford with an assist and we [Garnacho and Hojlund] scored, so we are very happy. It is one of the best days of my life.”

Hojlund’s Joy

Rasmus Hojlund, who scored the winning goal, expressed his happiness after finally getting off the mark in the Premier League. He said, “It’s been a while but yeah I am the happiest man alive right now. We believe until the end and we showed a lot of character again today. Hopefully I can build on it. I am happy for the three of us, the attackers, because today we showed a lot of character.”

Overall, Manchester United’s victory over Aston Villa was a significant moment for both Garnacho and Hojlund. Their goals and strong performances silenced critics and brought much-needed confidence to the team.
