Ever since Cristiano Ronaldo left Manchester United, not a single winger has dominated the flanks as much as he did

However, that may be coming to an end with England international Wilfred Zaha now featuring for the Red Devils.

Gifted with pace and immense dribbling ability, with quick feet, Zaha is never afraid to take defenders on. 

Weaving in-and-out of full-backs, he has single handedly created many goals for his former club, Crystal Palace. 

Titled the Championship Player of the Year while playing for Palace, Zaha helped earn them promotion to the Premier League - and is sure  to take the league by storm.

Zaha has proven in his first two games for the Red Devils that he can indeed make a difference, which is immense considering he just recently joined the squad. 

Skilful dribbling with good strength and balance to hold him up has allowed him to create a handful of chances for himself and his teammates.

However, Zaha still needs to refine and hone in other parts of his game. While managing to create plenty of chances, he is yet to score a goal for himself while playing for United.

While he hit the post in his first debut he has not gotten close to scoring another goal, as he squandered a few open chances in his full debut against the A League All Stars.

Also his ability to cross the ball into the box is also not one of his strong sides- which he will need training and also game-time to improve upon.

For such a young, raw talent as he is, Zaha will need to develop himself in order to fulfil his potential. With that, he will need opportunities and game time, however there is no need to worry about that.

Due to Ashley Young's continuing injuries, Valencia's and Nani's mediocre form, Zaha can grab that opportunity to feature for United. If he continues to impress in pre-season there is no doubt he will feature extensively next season for David Moyes' team.

If he manages to grow into a player as good as his potential promises us, Zaha can lead both Manchester United and England to success in the future, and let's hope he does, or else it will be a huge waste of his talent.
