Daniel James makes his first competitive start for Manchester United against Wolves tonight as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes just one change from the team that beat Chelsea on the opening day.

James came off the bench against the Blues last weekend to net a memorable debut goal and he impressed enough to lead to Ole bringing him in from the start at Molineux, in place of Andreas Pereira.

Indeed, the Wales international will be hoping to get his name on the scoresheet for a second successive match and grab a goal away from home for the first time in his professional career. According to Opta, all five of his league strikes to date have come at home (4 for Swansea and one for United).

All three summer signings – James, Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka – are in the first XI to face Wolves as the Reds look to build on the resounding win over Chelsea at Old Trafford which yielded four goals and a clean sheet. Any kind of victory would put Ole’s men top of the table later.
