Daniel James arrived within minutes of becoming a Leeds player in the January 2019 transfer window, before his move from Swansea collapsed and the Welsh international joined United six months later

Solskjaer gave James a rare start, knowing his pace would cause problems during the break, and he received his reward for a formidable performance as he clung to McTominay’s pass to help Illan Meslier for United’s fifth 24 minutes to drill deep before the end

Moments later, Leeds had been hit six times when Martial was upset in the penalty area and Fernandes was 10 United’s season penalty rolled home

The goal didn’t stop there when Stuart Dallas made a wonderful attempt into the top corner of the Leeds deficit

Dean Smith’s side dominated the entire game but had to wait up to six minutes to double the lead when Grealish scored Bertrand Traore for a composed finish before El Ghazi rounded the penalty after a foul by Grealish
