Get Alejandro Garnacho in that starting XI! Winners & losers as Man Utd's Argentine gem shows he's the real deal yet again to leave Antony sweating on his place

'Viva Ronaldo' was the soundtrack to games at Old Trafford last season but 'Viva Garnacho' fever has taken over. The Argentine had spent the last two months recovering from a cruel ankle injury that derailed his breathtaking first season in the first team but on his return to action against Wolves, he gave the fans what they had been craving, a second goal to clinch a 2-0 win.

After taking four points from their last four games and with Liverpool breathing down their necks after winning their last six matches, United's hopes of finishing in the top four were hanging by a thread.

A first-half goal from Anthony Martial set United on their way to a much-needed victory but Wolves did not lie down and threatened to find an equaliser deep into the second half. That all changed when Garnacho entered the pitch as he sunk Julen Lopetegui's side once and for all with a clinical finish in off the post in injury time. He proceeded to rip off his shirt and celebrate in front of the Stretford End - what a moment.

Garnaco has not been able to play since damaging his ankle ligaments on March 12 but his return could not come at a better time for United. They need two victories from their final three league games to seal their place in the top four and they have the small matter of the FA Cup final against Manchester City.

Garnacho wanted to join up with Argentina for the Under-20 World Cup but United said 'no' as they need him for the rest of the campaign. If his first game back is anything to go by, he could prove very useful indeed.
