Wilfried Zaha: Intends to stick around at Manchester United and fight for his pl

United agreed a deal with Crystal Palace in January for the England international, but allowed Zaha to see out the season at Selhurst Park.

It has been suggested that he could be allowed to return to the Eagles again in 2013/14, allowing him to get useful top flight experience under his belt.

David Moyes has, however, assured the 20-year-old winger that he will get opportunities at Old Trafford and Zaha is happy to stick around and fight for his place.

After figuring in the opening game of United's pre-season tour, he said: "I've grafted to get here so Manchester United is where I want to stay.

"I've moved away from most of my family and friends but it's progress. Everyone understands that.

"I wanted to make the move here because it's what is best for my career."

Zaha is convinced he has what it takes to become the latest in a long line of exciting wingers to grace United's flanks.

He added: "I'm going to do my best to continue those traditions.

"The fans see the wingers we have now and the high standard they bring to the team. I want to meet those high standards as well."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

P

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

W

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
