Manchester United fans were not impressed with midfielder Dan James during the Red Devils’ Premier League encounter away to Leicester City.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side made the Boxing Day trip to the King Power Stadium for a game with massive implications, with the chance to move above the Foxes into second place ahead of the rest of the weekend’s action.
James found himself coming out second best with his individual battles on the right-hand side, despite Marcus Rashford giving his side an early lead before Harvey Barnes’ equaliser.
Per Sofascore, James lost a quite remarkable nine out of ten (90%) of his duels and accumulated a lower pass completion rate than goalkeeper David De Gea with just 65%.
Should Dan James be dropped?
With this in mind, supporters took aim at the Welshman once more with some suggesting that he is seriously impeding the team’s attacking ability on the right-hand side.
Fans fume at James
“DJ, need to do better with the passing #MUFC”
“Dan James is terrible. We are playing without a right-hand side #MUFC #LEIMUN”
“Dan James just infuriates me every time he’s on the pitch. He doesn’t even run at defenders anymore — just so clumsy and out of his league. Also an absolute fluke of a goal. #LEIMUN #MUFC”
“Please take James off, he just runs aimlessly #MUFC”
“Daniel James has a first touch like a chainsaw #LEIMUN #MUFC”
“United.. just thick… keep giving it away.. what do you expect? Dan James is as much use as a chocolate teapot… #mufc”
