The 18-year-old winger put pen to paper on a five-year contract at the weekend before producing an impressive performance in the 1-1 home draw with Southampton.

Januzaj had previously underlined his huge potential by scoring twice in the 2-1 win at Sunderland earlier this month.

Jones, who started both games alongside Januzaj, told United's official website: "He's a terrific talent and it's an old cliche but as long as he keeps his head down, he can do great things for the club.

"There's massive pressure on him and he's only a young kid but it's testament to him that he's come in and done a great job.

"He threaded a brilliant ball for our goal against Southampton. He was sharp, he has nimble feet and he'll do great things for this club if he keeps working hard.

"He goes about his business quietly and if he keeps producing performances like that, he'll be a real star."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
