Everything you need to know about Manchester United’s Adnan Januzaj

After three Premier League losses for Manchester United in their last four matches, David Moyes took a bit of a gamble and started 18-year-old winger Adnan Januzaj against Sunderland. Man United went down 1-0 in just the fifth minute, but Januzaj proved to be the hero, scoring two beautiful goals within six minutes of each other in the second half to give Moyes and Man United a much needed 2-1 win. So exactly who is David Moyes' personal savior? Here is all the information we assume to be true about him.

-Born in Belgium, Januzaj started his youth career with Anderlecht before moving to Man United at 16.

-He was named Man United's 2013 reserve team player of year.

-He's only 18 years old.

-Ashley Young is jealous of his ability to not fall over every nine seconds.

-He really enjoys scoring goals in FIFA with his teammates while playing against his teammates.

-He is eligible to play for Belgium, Albania, Turkey or Serbia at the international level, but he has reportedly narrowed his choice down to his father's homeland, Albania, and his own. He seems most likely to select Belgium...as if they needed one more great young talent.

-He's only 18 years old.

-He is the youngest player to score a brace for Manchester United in a league match. And he did it in his first start. To make it even more special, he also got booked for diving.

-Speaking of FIFA, his FIFA 14 player rating is only 61 with an estimated potential of reaching 80, according to FUTHead.com. This is grounds for anyone who purchased the game to get a full refund.

-David Moyes said that Januzaj is of the same quality as Wayne Rooney (Moyes gave Rooney his debut at Everton). This means news of his first prostitute scandal is likely to break soon, eventually followed by his first of many transfer demands.

-His current contract expires in 2015 and the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson reportedly stalled negotiations. This could be Arsene Wenger's chance at revenge for Robin van Persie.

-Real Madrid have already offered Gareth Bale and €150 million for him.

-Moyes has changed his 22-year-old son David's name to "Januzaj Moyes."

-He's only 18 years old.

-He's the only thing keeping Man United supporters from preemptively wiping this season out of their collective memory and pretending that 2013/14 is the year that football went on hiatus out of respect to Sir Alex.
