Man Utd fans have been praising summer signing Daniel James after he has been compared to Arsenal winger Nicolas Pepe.
Manchester United player has banged in more goals and created the same number of assists as his Arsenal counterpart who cost them £72m, despite costing a mere £15m.
James has played really well for the Manchester United this season, is one of the most fouled players in the Premier League since the start of his first Premier League season (via WhoScored).
Talking about the control, he has been very reliable on the ball, having been dispossessed fewer amount of times per game than Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba.
Meanwhile, Nicolas Pepe has not been able to start his Arsenal career on the right note forcing Unai Emery to admit that the Ivorian could struggle for the whole 2019/2020 campaign (via Sky Sports).
Many fans took to the social media outlet Twitter to laud their young Welsh winger, with one supporter evening claiming that he is better than Atletico Madrid’s £113m signing, Joao Felix.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Old Trafford faithful:
Dan James is better than Pepe hands down https://t.co/JhUCnz0MVN

Is #DanJames the solution to the RW problem at #MUFC? The narrative seems to indicate that Sancho would come in and take his starting role – but I'm interested to see where we stand at the end of a full season. James is invaluable to #MUFC right now.
