CNN Sport reports that the teenage star needed just three minutes to find the back of the net with a stunning overhead kick that flew past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford into the far corner of the goal post.

Diogo Dalot delivered a brilliant cross into the Everton box to find Garnacho, who leapt in the air before connecting the ball with a bicycle kick.

Garnacho attempts an overhead kick vs Chelsea

The 19-year-old was at it again during Chelsea's visit to Old Trafford as he attempted to replicate his Everton stunner against the Blues.

The forward's attempt came in the second half of the match when a cross into the box bounced almost perfectly for the youngster to try his signature acrobatic effort.

However, his attempt was unsuccessful, with photos shared by ESPN on X showing his wayward effort flying to the stands.

Be that as it may, the winger still thrived upfront, as he set up Scott McTominay for one of the goals scored by the Red Devils.

The hosts won 2-1, with McTominay scoring both goals and Cole Palmer bagging Chelsea's consolation.

United's win fired them to sixth in the standings with 27 points after 15 games.

Sports Brief also reported on an interesting incident that saw Garnacho gift his boots to a fan who was left in tears.

In the video, a fan named George explains how Garnacho's goal was better than Rooney's as he shows the teenager a cutout of the stunning goal.
