Manchester United fans chant ‘we all hate Leeds scum’ at Daniel James, who responds by scoring equaliser for Fulham two minutes after coming on – but Alejandro Garnacho steals three points for Red Devils

    Daniel James needed just two minutes to make an impact against former club Manchester United as he netted an equaliser for Fulham.

    The winger, who spent two years at Old Trafford, is currently on loan with the west London side from Leeds and pegged his previous employers back at Craven Cottage.

    He entered the fray on 59 minutes and was met with jeers of ‘we all hate Leeds scum’ from the travelling Manchester United fans, the Manchester Evening News reports.

    And just two minutes later James silenced those jeers by equalising for Fulham from close range as he got on the end of Tom Cairney’s low cross from the left.

    Christian Eriksen put Erik ten Hag’s men ahead on 14 minutes with a finish on the stretch but Fulham have acquitted themselves well throughout.

    Man United needed David de Gea to stop Fulham turning the match on its head, the Spaniard making a spectacular save to deny a Tim Ream’s bullet header.

    And this allowed the away side to nick the win at the end, with wonderkid Alejandro Garnacho scoring in the final seconds of the match.

    The Argentine showed great composure to slide the ball past Bernd Leno after playing a neat one-two with Eriksen.
