Adnan named star man

Adnan Januzaj was named Man of the Match by fans on ManUtd.com and Twitter (@ManUtd) following his fine display against Fulham at Craven Cottage.

The young forward again impressed as the Reds secured an important 3-1 win against the Cottagers through goals from Antonio Valencia, Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney. Although not on the scoresheet himself, United’s number 44 showed once again why he is one of the most promising young talents in the Barclays Premier League.

A thorn in Fulham's side for the entire afternoon, Adnan picked up 43 per cent of the votes after probing tirelessly down the left flank and creating chances including the one converted by van Persie for the second goal.

MUTV pundits Lou Macari and Alex Stepney also nominated van Persie and Rooney, with the latter running Januzaj close after gaining approval from 38 per cent of the supporters.
