Perhaps the pressure of such a jersey weighed down on his considerably-sized shoulders as his consistency dipped slightly throughout the course of the season. However, like every top player, Valencia recaptured top form just at the right time, playing a key role in vital wins at Stoke City and West Ham to help secure the title in April.

Of course, his is a journey which has taken him from the Amazon Basin to the banks of the River Irwell, one which shows no sign of abating, and the 2013/14 campaign promises to reap further rewards for United's Ecuadorian powerhouse.
