The 18-year-old Belgian played the final 23 minutes against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford and did not look out of place.

He even played a part in United's second goal nine minutes from time when he was chopped down by a defender as he sprinted towards the penalty area, and Wayne Rooney subsequently curled home the resulting free-kick.

Moyes told United's official website: "Adnan's ahead of schedule.

"I would have introduced him earlier if the games had been suited, but the start of the Premier League has been a bit more difficult.

"I thought, if I got the opportunity against Palace, I'd introduce him and I considered playing him from the start.

"His performance when he came on shows that would have been merited. He did a lot of good things, he moved with the ball well. The boy's going to be a good player."

And talking about his league debut, Januzaj told MUTV: "I felt great and shocked because I played for about 25 minutes and that was my first game.

"I think I did some good things but it is only my debut so I have to keep doing well on the pitch."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
