Gary Neville hails Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Man Utd ‘masterstroke’ against Leeds

Daniel James’ inclusion in the Manchester United team to face Leeds proved to be a top call from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Welsh winger made his first start for two months against the club he almost joined from Swansea nearly two years ago.

And he even found his way onto the scoresheet with a neatly taken goal in the second half at Old Trafford.

Gary Neville was watching on from the gantry as the co-commentator for Sky Sports for the match.

He admitted to being shocked at the inclusion of James, who has come in for criticism from supporters this year.

But the pacy attacker showed Solskjaer and his doubters exactly what he can offer against the right opposition.

On commentary, Neville said: “I was surprised when I saw James' name on the teamsheet, but it looks like a masterstroke from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"The space that there is in this game, with his speed, it has given Manchester United a real outlet.

"The perfect game for him."

Scott McTominay made it the perfect start for the Red Devils at Old Trafford.

The midfielder bagged two goals inside just three minutes as United caught Marcelo Bielsa’s men cold.

Bruno Fernandes and Victor Lindelof then continued the first half drubbing, while Liam Cooper’s header pulled one back before the break.

Into the second half, Fernandes made it five from the penalty spot, before James converted his chance.

Stuart Dallas then gave Leeds fans watching on from home something else to cheer with a worldie from the edge of the box.
