Who won United's Goal of the Month?

Monday 04 December 2023 15:00

Manchester United's Goal of the Month has been decided, and there are no prizes for guessing which strike came out on top.

November saw some amazing goals scored by Reds players across our men's, women's and Academy teams.

Some of which, in any normal month, would have come out clearly on top, with incredible efforts such as Bruno Fernandes against Galatasaray and Millie Turner against West Ham.

But as you can see in the fan poll below, there was only ever going to be one winner in this month's edition.

Which effort do you think should win Goal of the Month?

With a resounding 94 per cent of the vote, Alejandro Garnacho's timeless overhead kick in the opening minutes away at Everton takes the top spot.

Tensions were high at Goodison Park and the game always felt like it may need a moment of brilliance, but few would have predicted just how spectacular that moment would be.

A deep cross from Diogo Dalot forced the Argentina international a few paces back, before he met the ball with the sweetest connection from his right boot, sending it flying past Jordan Pickford into the top-right corner.

Comparisons have already been drawn with Wayne Rooney's famous strike against Manchester City, and Garna's effort is sure to occupy a similar place in United and Premier League history.


In any other month, Fernandes's long-range effort against Galatasaray in a thrilling Champions League encounter would likely take the award outright, but under the circumstances it was the only other effort on this occasion that managed to gather more than one per cent, still only managing two per cent. 

Anthony Martial also garnered some fan votes for his goal that closed the same game Garnacho had so spectacularly opened against Everton, where the Frenchman latched onto a neat ball from Fernandes and dinked a finished over Pickford with ice-cold calmness.

All 10 of the efforts on our shortlist were superb, making our nominee video an enjoyable watch for Reds fans.

Watch our Goal of the Month for November.

Congratulations, Alejandro!

Thank you to everybody who voted.
