Alejandro Garnacho’s bicycle kick against Everton in November 2023 won the Premier League goal of the season.

Alejandro Garnacho scored the beautiful goal less than three minutes into the game, which Manchester United won 3-0 at Goodison Park. 

Marcus Rashford passed the ball to Diogo Dalot, who crossed the ball into Garnacho’s path. The Argentine met the cross with an overhead kick and proceeded to celebrate with the famous “SIUU.”

The Garnacho goal was similar to Wayne Rooney’s goal against Manchester City in the Premier League in 2011.

Gary Neville suggested that Garnacho’s goal was better than Wayne Rooney’s spectacular overhead kick in 2011.

During his punditry activities, Neville said, “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 there on the day Rooney scored in the Manchester derby. That was unbelievable and what we’ve just seen.”

“This atmosphere has been silenced somewhat. He moves back two or three short, shuffled steps. Wow. That is a magical, magical goal. I think we’ll see that a few times.”

The award came less than 24 hours after the winger helped Manchester United defeat Manchester City in the 2023–24 FA Cup final. Garnacho’s goal in the FA Cup final was his 10th goal in the 2023–24 season.

Manchester United won the FA Cup for the 13th time in the club’s history. Despite the fact that they ended up in 8th place on the Premier League table, Manchester United will be playing in the Europa League next season.
