Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer leaps to the defence of 21-year-old winger Daniel James over claims that the Welshman is a diver.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has leapt to the defence of summer signing Daniel James after claims that the Welshman is a diver.

The 21-year-old picked up a yellow card after going down following a challenge from Crystal Palace's James McArthur in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Eagles.

This followed the Welshman also picking up a caution for simulation against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.

Solskjaer defended his number 21 though, telling reporters: "At that pace, a touch or a nudge will be enough for him to fall.

"I am 100% sure there is contact between Dan and their defender. If you look at the video, there is contact and (in) the Wolves game. He has been unlucky. Neither yellow card should have stood."

James has made quite an impact since arriving at Old Trafford, having scored from the bench on his debut against Chelsea, as well as scoring against Palace on Saturday.
