Adnan Januzaj during his Premier League debut at home to Crystal Palace

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."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
