After the explosive bombshell that was dropped by Piers Morgan and Cristiano Ronaldo at 10pm on Sunday evening, it was easy to forget that Manchester United had won a Premier League fixture in such dramatic fashion just a few hours earlier.
After former Reds winger Daniel James had cancelled out Christian Eriksen’s opener just past the hour mark, United looked set to sign off for the World Cup break with a disappointing tally of four points from their last three matches. However, breakthrough star Alejandro Garnacho, fresh from stepping off the bench, proved himself as the calmest man in London to stroke home a 93rd-minute winner.
It sparked wild scenes on the pitch, in the Craven Cottage away end and on the touchline, as Erik ten Hag and his coaching staff celebrated what they knew was a vitally important goal. Garnacho’s heroics, with just one kick of the ball, made an enormous difference to the mood that will be felt around Old Trafford during the pause.
