MOTM for me, his touch and control was superior to everyone else's.

Yep, he was our best attacker. He was positive, direct and willing to take on opponents.

Considering the lack of oppportunities he's had, that was a very good showing. His bravery and confidence is very admirable. I hope he gets more opportunities as the season goes on but with the 3-5-2 it's hard to see where he'd play.

Looked really confident down the left particularly at start of 2nd half. Surprised he started but pleased to see him play. He'd been out of the side for a while, and has come back playing better, perhaps was told to go away and work on a few things and maybe Herrera is in a similar position right now to where Januzaj was.

It's great having someone taking on players, dragging defenders out to him all the time which creates space for others. Wouldn't say he's a long term option in that position in that system but against the lesser sides he certainly can do a job.

More comfortable down the left than cutting in from the right?

I see him as a left winger in the long term but he can play anywhere if needed I think as shown today.

Thought he had a good game, we need him to attack the defence more down that wing, and we know he can play in the 10 role if needed

He isn't a central midfield player.

Very good performance. A kick up the arse for Di Maria.

Brilliant cameo. He was a threat and caused problems for Sunderland's defence.

Seriously he could've just stayed upright.
