Despite experiencing defeat in six of the seven Premier League games he's played for Crystal Palace this season, Timothy Fosu-Mensah's loan move will do him the world of good.

Regular minutes weren't possible at Manchester United, so the young right-back moved to Selhurst Park over the summer.

Jose Mourinho certainly sounds happy with the progress Fosu-Mensah is making at Palace, now managed by Roy Hodgson.

Speaking to MUTV last month, Mourinho said his loan move is already a success because he's playing so many games.

"When you send players on loan or when the players ask you to go on loan the objective is to play," said the Portuguese boss.

"So I can say with Timo we can consider until now a successful loan because he is playing every minute of every game."

Fosu-Mensah became an instant hit at United last year when he made his debut in a 3-2 win over Arsenal and didn't let the occasion get the better of him.

Fast, powerful and composed, the 19-year-old has the makings of a top-class defender - or perhaps even a central midfielder.

Crystal Palace v Swansea City - Premier League

For reasons unknown, Fosu-Mensah only played five minutes against Chelsea on Saturday, although it turns out he wasn't needed.

Palace, having not scored in the Premier League all season before the game, secured a vital 2-1 win thanks to an own goal from Cesar Azpilicueta and Wilfried Zaha's 45th-minute effort.

And yet Fosu-Mensah still made news over the weekend for something that, if true, is pretty embarrassing.

There are suspicions that the Dutchman has a second Twitter account called @Blacks10414339 that he uses to defend himself after games and try and get compilations made (see below).

There is no proof that Fosu-Mensah is the owner of the account, of course, but now he's addressed the rumours using just two words.

In the tweet below, which he has since deleted, the teenager simply says: "Seriously people."


Why Fosu-Mensah decided to delete his tweet remains to be seen, but he's clearly having none of the rumours and wants people to think it's not true.

Deleting his tweet doesn't exactly make him look entirely innocent, though.
