Wilfried Zaha has shown amazing form as a Crystal Palace player in the Championship, but will he replicate his quality of last campaign? 

Zaha enjoyed an amazing season in the Championship last season under Ian Holloway at Palace, but after making the step up from Championship to Premier League, will Zaha have a bigger challenge to face in not just the Premier League, but as a Manchester United player?

Zaha is primarily used a right winger in the Palace set up, where most United fans would expect to see Zaha next season, but from competition for the spot from Antonio Valencia and Nani, would Zaha be able to achieve greatness like he did at Crystal Palace?

The England Under-21 International has a strong chance of making the first team, at the start of the upcoming campaign, as the 20-year-old will face competition from Antonio Valencia, which struggled to find his form last season and also Luis Nani which is entering his final year of his contract, who is showing no sign of penning an extension for the Reds.

Wilfried Zaha can also operate as a left winger where Ashley Young has been used since joining the Reds in July of 2011. Injuries have stuttered Young's career as a United player and the 28-year-old was unable to find the back of the net last season.

Also Shinji Kagawa, who primarily operates as an attacking midfielder, has been used as a left-winger under Sir Alex Ferguson. Also Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney have been used on the left-wing position last campaign.

Although, Zaha could grab the prospect of heading out on loan for a second time as an official United player, with Palace boss Ian Holloway showing interest in bringing Zaha back on loan to Crystal Palace. If Zaha was to go out on loan, would this benefit Manchester United more rather than Zaha?

The Red Devils paid £15 million to acquire Zaha's services in January, and many United fans have wondered whether he would be a regular starter, or would a loan move be the best thing for him?
