“I remember I was near the goalkeeper,” he said. “Wazza crossed the ball, I moved towards it and headed it into the goal. I was very happy to celebrate in front of our brilliant fans.”
The 22-year-old said that this Christmas has been the best he’s ever had.
“It’s been different for me but I’m very happy,” he continued. “This has been the best Christmas – I’m here with all my family and I’m playing with Manchester United. Now it’s important to get three points against Stoke at home.”
