Manchester United kicked off their pre-season tour over the weekend when they took on Perth Glory in Australia, and though it took the Red Devils 60 minutes to break the deadlock against their A-League opponents, they managed to score two goals without response.
This sight = a defender’s nightmare.

The main positive, as you can see from the tweet included above, was the performance of debutant Daniel James. The Welshman signed from Swansea back in early June, ManUtd.com, and it’s only taken him 45 minutes to show his new fans what he can do with a man of the match performance.
James started the clash and looked lively throughout his opening 45 minutes as a Manchester United player, winning three fouls before fading later in the game, according to Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News, who gave him a 7/10 match rating.
After last season saw the young winger bag four goals and nine assists in the Championship, Transfermarkt, you can see why there are United fans getting excited about James.

There’s something special about Daniel James. The lad’s so talented, but stays humble and wants to work hard. I strongly believe United have hit the bull’s-eye with the transfer. Fingers crossed for Dan!
