Manchester United: Moyes must stick with starlet

Manchester United face Southampton this weekend and when the team-sheets are announced, everyone will be looking out for one name - Adnan Januzaj. 

The United youngster began his very first Premier League outing in the Red Devils' last match away at Sunderland and the starlet certainly repaid his manager. 

Two fine goals from Januzaj swung the game in the favour of the champions and, ever since, the 18-year-old has constantly been hitting the headlines. 

So perhaps this weekend it would be easy for Moyes to take his most talked about starlet out of the limelight and keep him on the bench. 

There's certainly a case for it. He's only 18 and he may well have been taken back by all the fuss made over him in recent weeks. 

However, with the predicament United and Moyes currently find themselves in, the United boss has no choice but to start his new star. 

The Red Devils are desperate to find some from, and a victory over Southampton - a team that currently sit ahead of the champions in the table - would start to show momentum is building at Old Trafford. 

So Januzaj has to play.

He's one Red Devil who is full of confidence and is playing without fear. He's a breath of fresh air around the camp, and he has the talent to deliver the goods once again this weekend. 

Additionally, with the well known fact that Januzaj is currently not representing anyone at international level, the youngster will be fresh and raring to go. 

While others have been discussing him, he would have just been waiting for his next chance to shine. 

The atmosphere around Old Trafford will be different if he gets the nod to start on Saturday. The excitement from United fans to see their latest star in full flow will override any emotions of anxiety in knowing the team needs another three points. 

Additionally, if Januzaj wasn't to start, it would give Southampton players a boost. 

Moyes was given huge praise for gambling and sticking the youngster in the side at the Stadium of Light, now he must stick with his gamble and play his star again this weekend.
