Man Utd icon Schmeichel: James unbelievable for derby win

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has sung the praises of Daniel James after their derby win at Manchester City.

James starred in United's somewhat surprising 2-1 victory over their local rivals, thanks to goals by Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Schmeichel told Premier League Productions: "He was unbelievable, chasing every ball, he was in every counter-attack and, at the same time, he was doubling up with (Aaron) Wan-Bissaka on the right-hand side.

"Ryan Giggs must be so happy to see one of his players perform so well.

"He's played every single game this season and he's still playing well. That's a fantastic signing."
