Juan Mata has praised Daniel James for his “spectacular” form following his move to Manchester United from Swansea City in the summer.

The midfielder has been settling into life at Old Trafford after having signed for the Red Devils as one of Manchester United’s three acquisitions in the summer transfer window.

James has made an impressive start to life under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, scoring three goals in four Premier League appearances for the Red Devils so far.

The 21-year-old also continued his solid form by scoring the winner in Wales’ 1-0 win over Belarus during the international break.

And Spanish playmaker Mata says that he has been highly impressed by what he has seen from James in recent weeks since his move to Old Trafford.

Writing in his blog, Mata said: “Over the last few days we have seen how the English national team, with various of my team-mates involved, have continued to move positively towards qualification, as have Spain.

“Another player who continues to show his spectacular form is Daniel James, who scored in a friendly against Belarus after picking up a few goals at the start of the campaign.

“Hopefully on Saturday he will continue that run.”

Manchester United will now turn their attentions to their Premier League clash against Leicester City in front of their home fans on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils have made a mixed start to the new campaign and have only taken five points from a possible 12 in their first full season under Solskjaer.

Manchester United were pegged back and held to a 1-1 draw at Southampton in their most recent outing.
