The brother of Manchester United winger Daniel James has taken to social media to lament his luck, after leaving his sibling on his Fantasy Football team’s bench for the Red Devils’ clash with Chelsea.
United notch 4
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men welcomed Chelsea to Old Trafford yesterday evening, for the respective clubs’ Premier League season opener.
All of Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal had already picked up victories over the previous 48 hours, results which added a further air of importance to the showdown in Manchester.
And, when all was said and done, it was the hosts who got their campaign off to a flyer.
After Marcus Rashford put United ahead from the penalty spot early on, a quickfire double from Anthony Martial and Rashford shortly after the hour mark essentially killed the clash as a contest.

The cherry on top of a perfect day’s work for the Red Devils then came 10 minutes from time, when debutant Daniel James emerged from the bench to slot home beyond Kepa Arrizabalaga for the home side’s 4th.
‘More faith for the rest of the season’
And one individual who has since taken to social media to react to James’ debut strike is the wide-man’s brother.
In a post on Twitter last night, Alex James revealed that he had inserted his sibling into his squad for Fantasy Premier League, but opted to leave the Welshman on the bench, therefore failing to avail of the United star’s points haul:
