Manchester United boss David Moyes has urged fans to trust him over his handling of Wilfried Zaha.
"At times you have to believe what the manager is seeing as well," Moyes said.
"There is big competition for those wide areas.
"I have seen Wilfried training every day as well. I am privy to that."
Indeed, Zaha had been told he could go out on loan if the opportunity arose, only for injuries to delay his exit until the end of last month.
"We might have got him on loan even earlier but for the (hamstring) injury to Nani. I just wanted to see how that was," Moyes said.
"It is good for him, it is good for his development. Everybody will have a chance to see how he plays.
"The idea is he shows what he can do and comes back a better player for Manchester United."
