Manchester United faced Leeds United in their second pre-season friendly and came away with a comfortable 4-0 win. Although Leeds were not a full strength side, the comprehensive win would give Red Devils some much needed confidence.
Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones and Anthony Martial all got on the scoresheet for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, with two wholly different XIs on the field in each half.
However, new signing Daniel James once again caught the eye of the fans as he produced a moment of magic just before half-time. United broke on the counter attack with the Welshman putting his pace on display in a stunning sequence as he ran from box-to-box in a matter of seconds.
Just look at him start running from the second Pogba looks up and play that pass. He left everyone behind, it so deserved a goal at the end of it. He’s going to cause all sorts of trouble next season!— The Man Utd Way (@TheManUtdWay) July 17, 2019

Lot of pace on the break from #MUFC. Pogba releases Rashford there, runs forward and slips in Daniel James overlapping at rocket pace on his right shoulder. Shot clips far right post. Still 2-0 to Solskjaer's side #LUFC— James Ducker (@TelegraphDucker) July 17, 2019
James also took to Twitter to post an update after the game...
