Anthony Martial has heaped praise on Manchester United summer signing Daniel James for his impressive performances since arriving at Old Trafford.

James has been getting used to life at Old Trafford after having been signed from Swansea City in the summer transfer window as one of three new signings before the start of the season.

The 22-year-old has been a regular fixture in the Premier League for Manchester United this season and he had scored three goals and made three assists in the top flight before Wednesday’s clash with Tottenham.

The attacking midfielder is blessed with searing pace and he has been one of Manchester United’s top performers in an otherwise difficult campaign so far for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

And French striker Martial has admitted that he has been highly impressed by what he has seen from James since his arrival at Old Trafford in the summer.

Speaking in an interview with Manchester United’s website before the clash against Spurs, Martial said of James: “He’s a player who is blessed with incredible pace.

“He really is unbelievably fast and yet he is also someone who is able to choose the right option.

“In spite of all that pace, he doesn’t lose control, he keeps his head and then often manages to make the right choice.

“That’s a big plus for a forward player as that way he can make assists for us all. He really is a top player and someone I wasn’t aware of before, so quite honestly, that makes him a great addition.”

Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Saturday night when they take on Manchester City at The Etihad.

The Red Devils are aiming to try and break back into the top four this season after they finished sixth and without a trophy last term.
