Lots of Manchester United fans have been destroying the decision by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to start Dan James versus Leeds United at Old Trafford in the Premier League.
As per the official Twitter page of the Red Devils, the Wales international started on the right-hand side of the front three along with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, with Bruno Fernandes playing as a more advanced attacking midfield player.
Should James start for Manchester United?
Both Scott McTominay and Fred were selected to sit in front of the back four consisting of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw, with David de Gea back in between the posts.
James has only managed to score one goal and make no assists in his six previous games in all competitions in the 2020/21 term (Transfermarkt), and so does not really offer that much of a threat in front of goal against Marcelo Bielsa’s team.
Manchester United fan reaction to James starting
These Man Utd supporters destroyed the decision by Solskjaer to start the 23-year-old winger on Twitter, with one fan even claiming that it was ‘absolutely disgraceful:
I cannot believe Daniel James is starting a Premier League game…
