Valencia tallied a clean sheet, four crosses, two dribbles and five tackles in Wednesday's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Valencia looks fully healthy and at his best. That's his second consecutive start and he played exceptionally well, yet again. As an ex-winger he's very creative and active offensively and when plays regularly and at top form, Valencia has a high fantasy ceiling. He's in a tight battle with Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian and Ashley Young for the full back positions, though, and even if he gets another start the Red Devils' next encounter doesn't come until May 1 when they host the Foxes.

Valencia tallied an assist on three crosses and a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Slowly but surely Valencia is regaining his full match fitness after a lengthy absence. That was his first start since Oct 25 and he lasted the whole game managing to providing a good spark on the right flank that turned into an assist for the winner. That's his first Premier League assist in his third start. He'll probably have hard time keeping his starting role, though, with Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Matteo Darmian all healthy and competing for the two full-back positions.

Valencia has been out since October due to the injury, and while a return to fitness will be a huge plus, especially given United's injury issues in the back line, it will likely take some time for Valencia to regain his match fitness.
