Wilfried Zaha: Yet to make his Premier League bow for Manchester United

Wilfried Zaha: Yet to make his Premier League bow for Manchester United

The highly-rated winger only completed a permanent switch to Old Trafford over the summer, with a deal having initially been struck with Crystal Palace for his services in January.

After seeing out the 2012/13 campaign as a Championship play-off winner at Selhurst Park, and a senior England international, big things were expected of the 20-year-old forward.

He has, however, been restricted to just one run-out in the Community Shield and another for the England U21s this term - meaning he is still waiting on his Premier League bow.

Numerous clubs are said to be keen on offering him the opportunities he craves, and those he needs if he is to continue developing.

United were reluctant to discuss a loan deal at the start of the campaign, but Moyes now concedes that he will address the issue when the transfer window re-opens in the New Year.

He said in The Sun: "I've said if I couldn't get him a game I would look at it in January.

"I really thought when he came in he needed to be here for six months to see how we work.

"There is competition in the wide areas with Nani, Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Adnan Januzaj and even Shinji Kagawa - that makes it one of the areas where we are strong.

"It's not because Wilf has not done enough, it's because we have got big, big competition and there are a lot of players to give some playing time to.

"Unfortunately we've not been able to do that with Wilf. If I can't do a lot for him by January then I will look at it.

"We've not had the right opportunity to introduce him as much as we'd like but he's very much in my plans."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). 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.
