Manchester United: Supporters on Twitter get behind Dan James after first start

Drawing 1-1 away at Molineux was never the way that Dan James would have wanted his first start for the Red Devils to go, but Wolves are a tough side to beat, evident from the visitors’ two defeats against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men last season.

A lot of the focus was on James, though. The youngster started on the right-hand side of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s three advanced midfielders in a 4-2-3-1 system, and he was booked for diving in the 24th minute after running at pace past Joao Moutinho and going down cheaply.

After the game, the Manchester Evening News dished out their player ratings, and Dan James received a measly 3/10 on his first-ever start for the club. The fans, though, have been quick to defend their man, urging the rest of the fan base to give the youngster time and allow him to grow into the role, and some of them were full of praise for the winger.

The Red Devils seem impressed with Dan James’ performance, as you can see above, despite some of the criticism he has received.
