Adnan Januzaj‘s excellent return for Manchester United with the U21s against Southampton on Monday night certainly didn’t go unnoticed.
Man United fans were delighted to see Januzaj come back with such an accomplished performance having been away from the club for so long.
With two goals to his name, will Januzaj be in the squad to face Southampton on Saturday? Judging by what fans had to say, he looks ready for that:
Januzaj should easily make the bench Saturday but Will Keane defo in with a shout, 5 in 2. #mufcu21

Not just because of the win tonight but get Januzaj & Pereira playing consistently. 2 of our brightest youth players! @samuelluckhurst

4-0 FT. Two goals and assist for the returning Januzaj, a brace also for Will Keane. Andreas Pereira excellent as well. Enjoyable stuff

Good night for #mufc's Belgium-born duo. Januzaj's scored one and won a penalty while Pereira has been a joy to watch.

All fans wanted to see Januzaj kick on and re-find the sort of form he showed with such consistency in his debut season but Louis van Gaal decided a loan spell to Borussia Dortmund was the better course of action. As we all know, that turned out to be a terrible move.
Now, with fans supporting him once again and United being in need for some fresh attacking spark, Januzaj’s performance against Southampton U21s was the best thing he could have done to earn himself a spot in the squad this weekend.
