David Moyes was full of praise for Adnan Januzaj after the youngster scored a sublime goal in Manchester United's 3-1 over West Ham at Old Trafford today.

The 18-year-old doubled the Red Devils' lead after Danny Welbeck had opened the scoring against the Hammers.

That was the young winger's 3rd goal of the campaign following his stunning brace against Sunderland back in October.

Ashley Young sealed the points for Manchester United, before substitute Carlton Cole grabbed a late consolation goal for the visitors.

Januzaj's performance was one of the high-points in United's routine victory that moves them up to 7th in the Premier League.

Moyes said he was happy with the youngster's efforts today - but added he is pushing his young charge to be even better.

"Adnan Januzaj is doing really well," said the Manchester United boss after the game.

"We are always hard on him, we always want more but he is doing remarkably well. He can score goals, he is a real talent.

"We would like to be doing much better, we want to be right at the top but we will continue to keep going."

Januzaj blotted his copy book against West Ham when he was booked for a blatant dive.

Despite that Moyes had plenty to smile about after watching his Manchester United side win their third game in a row - however he wants to see them charge up the league over the festive period.

"We played well today," he said. "I'm a wee bit disappointed we didn't take some more opportunities and I was disappointed not to keep a clean sheet but we got done on the break.

"The job is to keep our head down and keep winning games. There is confidence among the players, we are creating a lot of opportunities right now. Danny Welbeck has a sore knee.
