Better than Zaha! Twitter raves about Manchester United target Tom Ince

Blackpool winger Tom Ince, a Manchester United transfer target was trending on Twitter last night, with Liverpool fans also letting their opinions known on letting the player go.

England's under-21 side continued their 100 per cent win record for 2012, via a 2-0 win over Northern Ireland last night.

Sunderland striker Connor Wickham and Arsenal forward Benik Afobe grabbed the goals, but it was winger Tom Ince who had spectators buzzing.

The in-demand Blackpool winger was trending on Twitter, such were the high volume of comments about the 20-year-old.

Here is a look at what was being said about the starlet by fans from various clubs...

@hargo95: Still struggling to understand how Wilfred Zaha has been called up to England 1st team over Tom Ince...

@joerooney53: Yeah, Tom #Ince was one of the stand out players tonight. But I actually thought that was average by his standards.

@kristoferhayes: I would definitely have Tom Ince at Newcastle next season #nufc

@samdavison12: Liverpool were stupid to let Tom Ince go, they've missed out on a massive talent! #foolish

@michellequilty: Tom Ince has played fantastic yet again. Destined for much greater things. Bet Liverpool are embarrassed they could not see his potential

@ianwatts10: Really hope we get to see Tom Ince in a united shirt very soon #MUFC

@paulproctor95: i'd rather have Tom Ince than Nani!!!

@myliemagic: Tom Ince is a #blackpoolFC star and will be with us until the summer!! Much better than Henderson and Zaha!! #upthepool #tangerinearmy

@schmiles: I would love to see Tom Ince back at Liverpool i'm gutted we let him go absolutely gutted!!

@joesimi97: Someone explain how Zaha is better than Ince? Not a chance

@murphywigan: As I was saying 5 hours ago Tom Ince>Wilfred Zaha

@calmyourthirst: If Zaha is called up then so should Tom Ince....more goals more assists...

But not everybody agreed that Ince was and is the talent he is being made up to be...

@rhunter17: Your messing if you think ince is better than zaha!!

@dannyclarkkk: Tom Ince - this years most overrated player

@ljrobinson5: After watching tom ince tonight I can safely say he's the most overrated player I've seen

@bobbyisgod: Where would Tom Ince play for Liverpool? Replace Sterling? I don't think so.

Who is better, Ince or Zaha? Or should England just be glad they have two such great young talents?

Let us know your predictions as to where both will sign in January, or will their clubs keep hold of them?
