Manchester United travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday, and given the patch-work feel of their forward-line that won’t be a trip they relish - conversely, Chelsea have recently begun to look increasingly metronomic under Jose Mourinho, and will rightly be heavy-favourites on their own ground.

You don’t really need a crystal ball to tell that Adnan Januzaj is destined for the top of European football, but at the same time it’s starting to become apparent just how close to the summit he’s likely to get.

Imagine how good a player Adnan Januzaj will be once he’s developed more upper-body strength - it’s frightening.

Adnan Januzaj was Manchester United’s match-winner this evening, and took both of his goals quite beautifully - but, as futile a plea as this will end up being, let’s not get too carried away with him.
