Phelan has been impressed by a number of individualsâ€™ performances, especially the new arrivals.
â€śRobin [van Persie] has come in and made an instant impact,â€ť he told manutd.com. â€śHeâ€™s still chasing a little bit of fitness and is still in that settling-in period, but heâ€™s a top-drawer player and thatâ€™s what we needed.
â€śShinji Kagawa has had a few games and now knows what the Premier League is all about and heâ€™s obviously played in Europe quite a lot. You can see his work-rate and heâ€™s started to show some real intent with his football and what heâ€™s going to bring to this club so itâ€™s exciting on his part."
