The dramatic win marked the start of the Ineos era for United, erasing a 2-0 deficit.

Facing boos at Old Trafford during halftime after Villa capitalized on set pieces, the comeback appeared improbable.

However, Garnacho, who had an early goal disallowed for offside, emerged as a key protagonist, scoring a crucial brace.

While Rasmus Hojlund’s first Premier League goal secured the win, Garnacho’s impact kickstarted the turnaround.

Ten Hag, acknowledging Garnacho’s disappointment from missed chances against West Ham, praised the winger’s fantastic game, emphasizing it as a well-deserved reward for his hard work.

“He played a fantastic game. He was so disappointed after West Ham that he didn’t score his one-on-ones.

Now he’s scored twice, and it’s a reward for all the effort and work he puts in,” commented Ten Hag.

Garnacho showcased his menace in the second half, utilizing his pace to unsettle the Villa defense.

Despite occasional missed chances, particularly in one-on-one situations, the 19-year-old’s promising performance hints at his potential as a future right winger for United.

While consistency remains a work in progress, Tuesday night’s display was a significant step, offering hope for Garnacho’s continued growth.
