A viral compilation of Alejandro Garnacho against Lens has fans urging for his Man Utd starting role

A compilation showcasing Alejandro Garnacho’s standout performance against Lens has taken the internet by storm, prompting fans to advocate for him as Manchester United’s top choice for the left-wing position in the upcoming season.

In a match where United triumphed over Lens, who secured second place in Ligue 1 last season, with a score of 3-1 at Old Trafford, Erik ten Hag continued his pre-season preparations for the approaching campaign.

The contest commenced with a slight setback as newcomer Andre Onana was caught off-guard and skillfully chipped by Florian Scotoca from 40 yards out. Despite the early setback, Marcus Rashford equalized soon after halftime, and goals from Antony and Casemiro secured the victory for United.

Nonetheless, it was Alejandro Garnacho who truly captured attention by delivering an impressive performance on the left-hand side. A compilation highlighting his standout moments has rapidly gained traction on social media, showcasing his remarkable skills and abilities. You can watch the compilation below.

The Argentine winger displayed his pace and creativity, setting up Mason Mount early in the first half, who could not turn the ball home. He also provided the assist for Antony’s goal.

Meanwhile, United fans reckon he should retain his place in the starting XI, despite being just 19-years-old.

Replying to the video onTwitter, one user wrote: “Against every other team bar City, Garnacho should start this season unless he’s not on form.”

“Best player on the pitch by far,” a second added.

“Garnacho is incredible on that LW, pure talent, ETH should give him more game time,” another wrote.

“A superstar in the making, he’s better than all our wingers,” a fourth fan exclaimed, while another said: “Generational talent. He’s ready!!!”

A final fan replied: “Can’t wait for Garnacho-Hojlund pairing!! They gonna cook perfectly.”

New signing Rasmus Hojlund was unveiled by at Old Trafford before kick-off, giving fans a first glimpse of their new striker.

However, the 20-year-old Dane is expected to miss the first few weeks of the season through injury, meaning usual left-winger Marcus Rashford is likely to be deployed up front.

As a result, Garnacho may be handed a starting role for the opening games of the season, with United’s first challenge against Wolves on August 14.
