Cape Town - Manchester United's 20-year-old star winger Adnan Janujaz admits he "must make things happen" on the pitch for his side.

"My game is all about trying to make things happen," Janujaz told ManUtd.com

Januzaj has endured a difficult season under Louis van Gaal especially when the Dutch manager has opted to play the 3-5-2 formation.

The Belgium youngster can play in a variety of roles but re-affirmed his stance that he feels most comfortable on the wing or by playing in the number 10 role.

"We had the diamond at Cambridge and I played as a left-midfielder," he said.

"I feel comfortable there as well. I think I can play well there without a problem.

"My favourite position is as a winger or a no.10. There are a lot of players here and I can play in different roles – it is just a case of taking any opportunities."

Janujaz is adding more aspects to his game in order to become less predictable.

"It's a case of mixing it up and causing the defender more problems because he won't know if I'll cross it or dribble," he revealed.

"I know I need to add that unpredictability to my game."

Januzaj is in line for a place in the starting position on Monday evening as Manchester United host Arsenal in the FA Cup, where the winner will be handed a place in the last 4 of the competition.

The match at Old Trafford kicks off at 21:45.
