Manchester United continue to be prolific off the bench after Garnacho stunner

Manchester United’s substitutes have been in fine form this season, with 22 of the club’s goals coming off the bench.

The latest addition to the list was Alejandro Garnacho’s late strike against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday. Anthony Martial had opened the scoring in the first half and the youngster sealed all three points in the must-win clash in his first return to the pitch since March 12.

It also marked the Argentine’s third goal off the bench this campaign, a term that has seen him make his breakthrough into the squad with some outstanding performances and finishes.

Now Garnacho has returned, it may be time to consider backing him to get on the scoresheet in United’s remaining matches. Easy money like getting a free spin no-deposit at your favourite casino.

It likely comes as no surprise to fans that Marcus Rashford leads the rankings for most goals as a substitute, as he’s also the club’s top goalscorer with 29 to his name in all competitions. He’s still seeking that elusive 30th goal that will hopefully come in the Reds’ final four fixtures (including the FA Cup final).

The 25-year-old did miss out on the clash against Wolves on Saturday due to injury but hopefully, he’ll return to the fold in the coming days. His contributions have seen him nominated for the PFA Fans’ Player of the Year award and he’ll undoubtedly be on the shortlist for United’s own POTY.

Anthony Martial has struggled continuously this season with injuries but has still been able to provide the occasional goal during his cameos. As a sub, the Frenchman has registered five contributions, with the latest coming against survival-chasing Everton at Old Trafford.

Fred has found the back of the net on three separate occasions off the bench too, despite not being the most likely goalscorer from United’s attackers. They came against Nottingham Forest, Reading and Barcelona – a drastic mix of opponents!

Others include Jadon Sancho with two and Antony, Scott McTominay and Cristiano Ronaldo all with one apiece.

Next up for the Red Devils

Heading into a pivotal run-in of games, Erik ten Hag will certainly hope that his Reds are able to contribute goals in any form necessary, whether it be as a starter or as a substitute.

United are next in action this Saturday for their final away trip of the Premier League campaign against Bournemouth. They’ll then return to Old Trafford for their final two matches, against Chelsea and Fulham, in a bid to clinch a Champions League spot.

The first-ever Manchester derby FA Cup final will take place on June 3 at Wembley Stadium – one that has fans on both sides sweating over the result.
