'Legend' is a word that is thrown around far too often. I believe very few players that have played in the Premier League are legends. Manchester United have developed most of these legends, in my view.

One such legend is United's Ryan Giggs. In his prime, the former Welsh international was one of the best players in the league. 

On Saturday evening, we saw Manchester United pick up a win against Swansea after three straight defeats in all competitions. This can all be attributed to the performance of one player - Adnan Januzaj.

Januzaj not only ran the show at Old Trafford, but the way he played reminded me of Giggs. The way Januzaj was darting and weaving through players like they weren't even there was like watching highlights of Giggs as a teenager.

Giggs has seen many players compared to him over the years , one of which is Gareth Bale - though Bale does have the potential to be as good or even better than Giggs. United have, in their squad, a player who is almost identical to Giggs (in terms of playing style) in Januzaj.

Januzaj has been placed under a lot of pressure as of late. He has played almost every game this season and he was recently given a new five-year contract. Personally speaking, I don't think he needs this pressure at his age, but if he continues to play like this, then he will be one of United's best players.

Manchester United have had a very disappointing season to date but if they add new players during this transfer window and if the likes of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie stay fit, players like Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez and Januzaj improve, United will find their form again.
