The Belgian teenager was a surprise addition to the starting line-up in among the likes of Wayne Rooney, Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria but Januzaj showed he wasn’t out of place.
At times last season he was the star as others failed to adapt to life under David Moyes but Januzaj has often been a casualty of United’s big spending in the summer.
Making his first league start since the start of November, Januzaj showed glimpses of his undoubted talent and supporters were happy with his performance.
A few more games more and Januzaj can’t be stopped. Decent but not excellent today. #mufc

Januzaj had been given the chance to impress last week against Cambridge United and took his chance well. Despite a frustrating result, Januzaj showed his skill and pace on the wing, buying him a start against Leicester.
With Cambridge the opposition once again on Tuesday night, it’s another chance for the Belgian to shine at Old Trafford.
