Adnan Januzaj was named Manchester United player of the month for October, beating off competition from Wayne Rooney and David De Gea.
The youngster has become a key component to this United side and he showed this in his performances against Sunderland where his brace saved United from another league defeat and the 4-0 victory over Norwich where he ran the show in a central role in particular.
The award comes on the day when United great Gary Pallister insisted that the spotlight be taken off the youngster and he be allowed to develop at his own rate.
Januzaj was the clear favourite picking up a whopping 42 per cent of the vote ahead of Rooney’s 34% and David De Geas 24% and was understandably pleased with this achievement:
“It’s good to be recognised for your performances on the pitch but I realise that I have to work hard and keep progressing as a player. I will try to contribute to the team whenever I play and hopefully play my part in a successful season.”
Here are the 18 year old’s best bits from the month of October:

My predic in advance
rafa (if available) or fabio,vidic,evans,evra
valencia,jones, cleversly ( if available) or fellaini or anderson,kagawa also can played the he always wanting to played in central) januzaj.
Rooney and van persie and chicharito in coming as sub.
This best to face arsenal
everyone happy fans who want kagawa in central as kagawa also want to played their and rooney get his place behind striker no headache for moyes. And with two winger right valencia and left januzaj. Most important jones as defensive midfield to secure the defence.
This is a dream i don’t know when it will come true. I always heard that moyes has headache for selecting kagawa position. By this all dangerous player played in same line -up valencia,kagawa,januzaj,rooney wat we want.
Shit januzaj come ifront but you know i want him as left winger.
The tactics is same 4-4-2 but a bit change in midfield. Kagawa is a bit forward as creative attacking midfielder whereas jones is defending midfielder who protect the midfield and break arsenal attack in central. Because arsenal always keep passing each other in central to create chance to score goals and jones will stop them.
he is a good kid and deserves the award
Team utd all d way!,,,,I believe dt we re gona get a positive/favourable result 4rm our nxt game even though moyes is a draw specialist!!!!
chicharito will score in this match.
Carrick make his return in second half after his injuries recover.
Why moyes don’t try to played kagawa with carrick or jones or fellaini in central midfield. I don’t understand if a player like jones in playing there because of his defence ability so why kagawa can’t with his creativety. Moyes please again and again atleast try to played kagawa in central midfield.let januzaj as left wings.
Even rooney had been used to play central midfielder so why kagawa can’t. Is it fair with kagawa.this boy can dribble 4 player surrounding him in midfield to pass and create chance to striker upfront. Even they giggs is central midfield that make me angry when i saw that.
