Phelan: Man Utd fans enjoying Valencia play

Manchester United assistant boss Mike Phelan says they're delighted with Antonio Valencia's progress this season.

Valencia was again on the scoresheet in United's 3-0 victory over Everton.

Phelan said: "Well that was always going to be the case. We felt it would take a little bit of time for him to start showing the real talent that he's got. We observed him over the last season and we knew what we could get from him and he's now gone on a run of five, six games now where he has showed his quality.

"Antonio is now enjoying his football because he knows what's expected of him and I think the crowd are reacting to him really, really well and he's paying them back with some good, skilful football."
