Fans do not understand why Dan James was in Man United’s starting XI vs Chelsea

Manchester United fans believe their side might have won tonight’s game against Chelsea had Daniel James not been in the starting XI.

Supporters flocked to social media to vent their frustrations about the team selection for this evening’s game, with James in particular subject to huge criticism.

Comments included:

‘Starting Dan James is wasting a substitution.’

‘Didn’t need to start with Daniel James. Poor from Ole with the line up even if I understood the Centre midfield picks. Overall, an annoying game to watch.’

‘Daniel James doesn’t offer anything up front. I’m actually shocked how this guy can start but not VDB.’

‘Explain to me why we need Daniel James again? If he is there just to keep the shape then he should play in a championship team unless you believe United are a championship team? Rubbish player!

‘A wasted first half with Daniel James!’

‘It’s about time Daniel James is left out of the squad. What does he even offer? Amazes me how he still manages to be in the starting eleven.’

‘Daniel James is not a first team player. Greenwood or Cavani should start ahead of him.’

‘Greenwood did more in 10 minutes more than Daniel James in 70 minutes!’
