Roy Keane's brilliant reaction to Alejandro Garnacho's Manchester United stunner vs Everton

Roy Keane was full of praise for Alejandro Garnacho after his stunning goal for Manchester United against Everton.

The teenager broke the deadlock in some style at Goodison Park, firing in a spectacular bicycle kick with pinpoint accuracy after just four minutes.

Diogo Dalot's cross from the right wing was floated into the Everton area, straight to the Argentina international. And he produced a frankly outrageous finish to give United the lead.

Marcus Rashford put the visitors further ahead from penalty spot after the break before Anthony Martial secured all three points for United late in the second half.

During half-time of the Premier League match, in which United had looked shaky at the back and let off the hook by poor finishing from the Toffees, Keane delivered his verdict on the spectacular opening goal of the game.

Keane and his fellow Sky Sports pundits were perfectly placed to watch the strike unfold and the Irishman heaped praise on the 19-year-old for his remarkable finish.

"Absolutely amazing," said the former United captain.

"We had a great view of it behind us. It was really good movement, a great ball from (Victor) Lindelof, a good run from Dalot, (Marcus) Rashford gets it, a little ball down the sides, very positive in the first few minutes.

"The ball goes in (the box) and I'm thinking 'this is in'.

"It's very hard to talk about it because I've never done it in my life, but when he does it, the contact he makes with it, the skill levels, as soon as it left his foot we were right behind it."

Keane continued that he is normally critical of goalkeepers, but he opted to not do so against Everton and England stopper Jordan Pickford due to the quality of the strike, with the Toffees goalkeeper at full stretch as he attempted to keep out the goal but to avail as it landed perfectly in the top corner.

"I'm usually critical of goalkeepers, but I'll let him off for this one," joked Keane.

"A brilliant goal and a brilliant start from United."
