A compilation of Alejandro Garnacho vs Lens has gone viral, fans want him to start for Man Utd

The Argentine winger played a blinder.

A compilation of Alejandro Garnacho's performance against Lens has gone viral, with fans calling for him to be Manchester United's first-choice left-winger this season.

United overcame Lens, who finished second in Ligue 1 last season, 3-1 at Old Trafford as Erik ten Hag continued his pre-season preparations for the upcoming campaign.

The contest got off to a shaky start after new boy Andre Onana was caught off his line and brilliantly lobbed by Florian Scotoca from 40 yards.

Marcus Rashford levelled the scores shortly after the break before goals from Antony and Casemiro took the game beyond Lens.

However, it was Garnacho who really caught the eye, dazzling down the left-hand side. A compilation of his performance has since gone viral on social media, which you can watch below.

The Argentine winger displayed his pace and creativity, setting up Mason Mount early in the first half, who was unable to turn the ball home. He also provided the assist for Antony's goal.

Meanwhile, United fans reckon he should retain his place in the starting XI, despite being just 19-years-old.

Replying to the video on Twitter, one user wrote: "Against every other team bar City, Garnacho should start this season unless he’s not on form."

"Best player on the pitch by far," a second added.

"Garnacho is incredible on that LW, pure talent, ETH should give him more game time," another wrote.

"A superstar in the making, he’s better than all our wingers," a fourth fan exclaimed, while another said: "Generational talent. He's ready!!!"

A final fan replied: "Can’t wait for Garnacho-Hojlund pairing!! They gonna cook perfectly."

New signing Rasmus Hojlund was unveiled by at Old Trafford before kick-off, giving fans a first glimpse of their new striker.

However, the 20-year-old Dane is expected to miss the first few weeks of the season through injury, meaning usual left-winger Marcus Rashford is likely to be deployed up front.

As a result, Garnacho may be handed a starting role for the opening games of the season, with United's first challenge against Wolves on August 14.
