United headed into the international break with plenty to work on after three winless matches, but at least they appeared to have found a potential star.
Daniel James has shone since his low-key arrival from Swansea and struck home a spectacular eighth-minute opener to take his Premier League tally to three – as many goals as Alexis Sanchez mustered in 19 underwhelming months before his loan move to Inter Milan.
The superb run of form saw the Welsh winger receive the Player of the Month award for August.
Old boy Patrice Evra presented the award and one could see the Frenchman’s influence after Daniel James took to social media to celebrate the moment by captioning – “I love this game!”
Very proud to win the @ManUtd Player of the Month award for August! A big thank you to everyone who voted for me, and a special thanks to @Evra for presenting the award to me. I love this game! 😁🔴 #MUFC pic.twitter.com/QXPmuePyVf— Daniel James (@Daniel_James_97) September 12, 2019
