Daniel James has been one of Manchester United’s standout performers this season, marking himself out as one of the signings of the summer and establishing a consistent starting place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side – with club legend Peter Schmeichel becoming the latest pundit to issue deserved praise.
James’ finesse on the counter-attack during United’s 2-1 derby win at the Etihad was one of the reasons they came away from Eastlands victorious – with the Wales international consistently giving left-back Angelino a tough time out wide.
Who has more ability, Daniel James or Nicolas Pepe?
His performance against their bitter rivals in particular has warranted due praise from the former Red Devils shot-stopper, who has claimed that he was ‘unbelievable’ in the encounter and hinted at his importance during United’s second win on the trot against a top six side.
The ex-Denmark international stated, via United Xtra: “He (James) was unbelievable, chasing every ball, he was in every counter-attack and, at the same time, he was doubling up with Wan-Bissaka on the right-hand side. He’s played every single game this season and he’s still playing well. Fantastic signing.”
As a result, supporters have been quick to fully agree with the 1999 treble winner – here’s what they had to say on Twitter.
