Diogo Dalot was not the only one who loved Daniel James’ opener against Southampton at St Mary’s.
The Portuguese defender reacted to United’s first-half efforts, and the stunning effort effort that gives United a lead.
It’s not been a great performance in truth so far or the Reds, who have often looked passive and let Southampton attack at will.
Ralph Hassenhuttl’s side look lively and ambitious going forward; Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side definitely need a second goal to make the lead comfortable.
The Saints have not threatened with clear openings, but it’s been far from plain sailing for United, who must step up in the second-half to secure all three points.
Dalot is currently out nursing an injury meaning Ashely Young has taken Luke Shaw’s position at left-back.
See the full-back’s reaction below:
Good first half an hour so far, what a goal by the boy @Daniel_James_97 🙌🏾🙌🏾 keep it up boysss 🖤
