Despite the defeat against Tottenham Hospur in the Premier League, lots of Leeds United fans have still taken to Twitter to hail the performance of Dan James.
The Welsh winger, lining up on the right wing for Marcelo Bielsa’s side on Sunday evening, was a constant threat to the Lilywhites defence throughout with his direct style of play and willingness to take his man on causing real problems for the home’s side defence.
It was no surprise then that the former Swansea and Manchester United ace opened the scoring in the 44th minute for the away side after he converted Jack Harrison’s superb cross to fire home past home keeper Hugo Lloris.
Should Leeds have signed Dan James?
Despite ending up on the losing side, many Leeds fans took to Twitter to praise the performance of the 24-year-old Welsh winger:
What did these Leeds fans say about James’ performance vs Tottenham Hotspur?
“What a signing”
“Dan James tax cold baller”
“Dan James running all day non stop”
“The Welsh Messi”
“Get in, Daniel lad! A goal 30 months in the making”
Despite the defeat to Conte’s side, Bielsa’a players can take real heart from their perfomance against the north London outfit and will be looking to return to winning ways in the league when they take on Brighton the Amex Stadium next Saturday evening as they seek to reignite their league campaign.
