He was a huge threat, and is basically the key to the counter attack that is causing so much havoc recently, night and day to slug Antony as a right sided player, direct, penetrative, unrelenting, but also erratic with his decisions.

Young and learning. We have been so starved of really good attacking talent off late that we tend to forget he is still not even 20. Still developing really well and have high hopes. If he keeps improving the sky is the limit for him. Plus his work rate does not drop which cannot be said about some of our players.

Top talent and looks dangerous when he gets the ball. I feel like he’s playing too many minutes and needs to be rested a bit though he looked leggy in the second half.

Shoutout for his work rate he runs his bollocks off

Just needs to sort out that final part when he gets in to the box, needs to be more decisive and pick the right pass or shot, everything else leading up to it is spot on from him.

Him and Rashford must have a football IQ that doesn't get into three figures combined. At least he's young enough to learn.

Decision making was bad today. Hopefully we can get some good attacking coaches in so we won't waste his potential.

He's defending as well as attacking, so doing more than you would normally expect. By the time he was clean through on their goal, he was shattered. He is only a teenager, and not fully developed as an athlete, but you can see the potential. He will be some player.

Yeah 100% his work rate is something to behold honestly it’s rare to see that type of winger put in such a shift

I’m delighted with Garnacho he’s one of my favourite players

What I like about him most is that he always makes things happen and his effort levels are almost always top class. He had that spark as usual today but it was one of those days for him where he gets more and more desperate and hopeless in the final third. I wish on such days he’d just settle down and play a support roles at her than Stevie Me-ing more and more.

Oh well he’s yong and learnin

He'll improve his decision making and finesse as he ages.
He's well on the way to being a very very good player

He is wonderful! nothing to complain about tonight…for a 19 year old he is bloody marvellous, and scares the life out of the opposition.

He's a great talent but wasn't good enough today, but this is the sort of thing you expect from a 19 year old.

Great talent but decision making needs to improve rapidly.

Always a threat. Has a lot of energy.
He's inconsistent with his end product but to be expected. Hopefully it all comes together in the next year or two.

A big thing he has going for him is that it seems that even his weaker foot is dangerous. Many are reluctant to use their weaker foot but he seems alright using his left.

Even though he skied it, there was a moment in the second half where he got the ball at the edge of their box, pulled off a feint and turn that threw off the defender and bought himself some time and space to shoot with his left. Despite the miss, that whole play was very promising.

It goes without saying he is one of our best current options on the wing but I was hugely frustrated by his performance today. With better composure and decision-making he'd have had us home and dry. He has time on his side and I don't want to dig him out, but he needs to improve.

Inconsistent as expected. He can be really frustrating but he's one of the first players on the team sheet

he’s young and hopefully will learn. I like the urgency he adds to the right wing. Antony was very limited. Garnacho needs to learn that a simple pass is sometimes the best option. But he’ll learn hopefully.

marcus on the other hand is a hopeless case for me….

Not his best today but he’s young and inconsistency is part of it. He’s been very good otherwise recently.

On another day might have had a hattrick.
Works so hard and never gives up. Will be a top player in a year or two.
Yes some poor decisions but he doesn’t let it affect him and he can learn. Have to remember he’s not playing in a well functioning front 3 at all……

The most selfish player we have. He is very skilled, but he needs to look up and find his teammates, if we want to build a team.

He definitely needs better manager and better senior players to give him bollocking, but the obvious talent is here. He won't learn much from Bruno, Rashford, Casemiro, etc. who are even less responsible than he is.

I will have a lot of patience with performances like that, because he still works his socks off, gets into good positions and tries a ton of stuff. Obviously decision making needs improvement, and he can seem a bit selfish at times, but he's 19. It's crazy that he's a regular starter.
