Nani shows his class

Luis Nani once again showed his quality last night with an impressive performance against Stoke as he again displayed why he is one of the best players in the division but yet gets not half the praise he deserves.

He set up one with a pinpoint cross to Javier Hernandez before grabbing the winner thanks to a sublime left footed strike from 20 yards. His assist for the first goal means he now has more assists than anyone else in the league this season as well as five goals for himself.

When Nani came to United, it was in the prime of Ronaldo and he struggled to make much of an impact. He was known as a somebody who moaned all the time and was far too selfish, he still is now but to a far lesser extent.

It wasn't until nearly a year ago when he finally showcased his ability to be a world class player that brought him to the club in the first place.

The game was at Arsenal and was a key match for United in their quest to win a 19th League title. He put in a magical performance that stated just how much potential he has got. First, he produced a wonderful piece of skill to trick his way passed Cliche and Nasri before sweeping though Denilson and lifting the ball to the far post were Almunia could only palm into his own net.

Four minutes later he teed up Rooney for United's second and Nani had finally arrived.

Almost a year later he is one of the best player in the league and a crucial cog in United's title machine that has gone 25 league games unbeaten.

In my opinion he is the most underrated players in the league, his trickery and pace have caused panic to every defence he faces.

And at 24, Nani has the potential to go on and become on of the greatest players in the world.
