Luis Almeida da Cunha has been a source of constant frustration for United fans since his successful 2007/08 season when he looked like a huge talent. He failed to capitalise on the promise shown during that campaign and his days at United looked to be numbered.
Then, suddenly, Fergie started playing him on the right where we had one of our more impressive performers of the season in Antonio Valencia. Nani played reasonably against Burnley, wonderfully against Hull, well enough against Manchester City - and this merited a starting place at the Emirates today.
And he did not disappoint: he displayed lovely skill, scored a brilliant goal (it will be Almunia's own goal in the record books but who cares?) and assisted another.
'I think that was my best game. I played well, scoring and getting an assist,' he told Sky Sports.
'It was a fantastic performance from the team and I was so happy to help. I'm working hard every day to be fit for the team.
'I want to help the team play well. I can feel the confidence of my team-mates, the fans and the manager.
'I'm so happy and want to continue this good form.'
We're so happy and want you continue this good form. The only man who, I suspect, is none too happy, is Antonio Valencia but I maintain that he should be tried through the middle in a 4-3-3. He played there for Wigan and Ecuador and has all the skills required for the role. And we do not have a plethora of attacking midfielders anyway...
But right now the spotlight is on Nani and that is how it should be. He made the most of the opportunities he's been getting recently and he might have just saved his United career. I know that in the past two weeks he bought himself a lot of patience from me.
