Adnan Januzaj is convinced that it will not be long before Manchester United are back at the top of English football.

The Red Devils have found themselves under pressure this season after failing to find consistent form under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

Indeed, Manchester United are currently languishing down in eighth place in the Premier League table and 12 points behind leaders Manchester City after 12 games of the season.

Mourinho’s men have struggled to string together a series of positive results this term and they suffered a demoralising 3-1 loss to Manchester City at The Etihad last weekend.

Red Devils fans would have been hoping to see their side challenge for the title this season but Manchester United will now first have their sights set on breaking back into the top four.

But although former Manchester United man Januzaj admits that the Red Devils are “struggling” this term, he feels that it won’t be too long before they bounce back.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports News, Januzaj said: “They [Manchester United] are struggling, it is a great team and great fans but they are struggling at the moment.

“Obviously, they are going to get back on top. I think they need to make the right decisions to win games.

“There are many different reasons [why they are struggling] so they need to make right decisions.”

Asked about his own time at Old Trafford, the Real Sociedad midfielder added: “I didn’t really get a chance because at the time he [Mourinho] probably wanted more experienced players with names.

“For me it wasn’t a problem. I had to move on and now I am happy in Spain and making a difference. I always knew I had the quality to play for Manchester United. I know what I am capable of.

“They didn’t give me a chance but it’s not a problem I am happy in Spain and enjoying my football.”

Manchester United will aim to return to winning ways after the international break when they take on Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday 24 November.

They ended last season without a trophy after they were beaten by Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final back in May.
