United fans react to Januzaj's brilliant U21 hat-trick last night - 'Glimpses of Giggs'

Manchester United fans have sung the praises of Januzaj after his performance for the U21 side last night.

Adnan Januzaj scored a hat-trick for Mancester United's under 21 side last night and his performance has caused quite a reaction from Red Devils supporters.

The Belgian international is considered the brightest talent coming through at Old Trafford at the current time, but his first-team chances appear more limited this season after an influx of additions.

The expensive summer recruitment drive from United has seen Januzaj slip down the pecking order after making the break-through last year, but he doesn't seem to have reacted badly to having to play youth-level again.

To the contrary, Januzaj has responded with a performance which may make Louis Van Gaal reconsider whether he can find a place for him in the starting line-up at United, even despite the new additions.

The 19-year-old's three goals were all brilliantly taken, as he starred in the U21 side's 4-0 win over Sunderland. 

United's season appears to be clicking into gear after the first-team won by the same scoreline at the weekend against QPR, but if Januzaj keeps on putting in showings of this standard Van Gaal will have to find a place for him.

United are famed for their ability to bring players through their youth-academy and Januzaj has the best chance of any of their youngsters coming through of making it, meaning they will not want to risk unsettling him by not playing him.

The display has caused a positive reaction from supporters on the side, too, with Twitter awash with comments comparing him the Ryan Giggs. 

Below are some of the best tweets in response to Januzaj's memorable display.
