Daniel James Named Manchester United Player of the Month for August After Stellar Start to Season

​Daniel James has been named as Manchester United's player of the month for August, after a lightning-quick start to life at Old Trafford. 

United have flattered to deceive at the beginning of the season, going winless since their opening day hammering of ​Chelsea, but there have been encouraging signs from their four matches - none more so than the performances of their summer arrivals. 

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire look to have steadied the defensive ship, but it's James in particular who has started with a bang, scoring three times in his four appearances, most recently finding the net with a spectacular opener against Southampton just prior to the international break. 

The £15m signing from Swansea has been recognised for his efforts, netting the club's first player of the month award of the season. 

The fan-decided award saw James take 61% of the vote, with Wan-Bissaka netting 36% and Maguire making up the other 3%

He'll be looking to build on his early displays when he returns from Wales duty next weekend, and will be hopeful of a fourth consecutive start when ​United look for a second win of the season against Leicester at Old Trafford, before the gruelling trip to Astana in their Europa League opener five days later.
