Januzaj wins fans' vote

Fans on ManUtd.com and Twitter voted Adnan Januzaj as Manchester United’s Man of the Match in the 1-1 draw with Southampton.

The 18-year-old celebrated his new five-year deal with a dynamic, confident display of pace and skill on the left wing as he frequently threatened to carve through Saints’ defence at Old Trafford.

Often upended by opposing defenders after fooling them with his trickery, his wonderful pass to Wayne Rooney led to United’s goal in the first half and he went close to scoring himself with a stinging drive.

Adnan picked up 55% of the votes in our polls to finish above David De Gea (30%), who thwarted the visitors several times and was unlucky to see a late goal ruin his clean sheet.

Centre-backs Jonny Evans and Phil Jones coped well with a testing Saints attack and the former came third in the voting with 15%.
