VIDEO: Nick Powell scores overhead kick to continue brilliant goalscoring form

by Sam Peoples

Nick Powell scored an overhead kick for Wigan Athletic today in their 3-2 victory over Bolton Wanderers to further show his credentials as a goalscoring midfielder.

The 19-year-old showed great technique to acrobatically finish as he continues to flourish on an outstanding loan spell at the Championship club.

His goal today means Powell has seven goals and two assists for Wigan this season which is an unbelievable return given that he has been used in a variety of positions including central midfield, attacking midfield and up front as a striker.

All that before January on his first loan spell away from United – what a return that is.

The only question surrounding his future is whether or not David Moyes should recall from his loan spell in January or let him stay at Wigan for the whole season.

Either way, United have got a fantastic midfield talent in our ranks that is no doubt going to become part of our first team squad next season on a permanent basis, something that every United fan should find exciting.
