#2) Daniel James
Jose Mourinho was the manager of Manchester United for almost 3 seasons. The manager is very well aware of the players that play in the opposite camp having made their training regime and match day plans. It is therefore, fair to say that he knows both their strengths and weaknesses.
In Daniel James however, Man United have a weapon that could prove to be their wildcard vs Tottenham. The young winger is almost an unknown commodity for most in the Premier League. We have said it many times before and we will say it once again, both teams possess a weak backline and the match will most probably be decided by the team that attacks better.
Jesse Lingard, Andreas Pereira, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have all developed under the Portuguese and Mourinho will no exactly how to counter them. This is where James comes in handy. The only new frontline addition could end up becoming the clubs x-factor heading into the match.
Apart from that, James also has a very infectious enthusiasm. It feels like every time he performs well, the rest of the club and especially the forwards do well as well. James may have had some quite matches in the last few weeks. However, every time United have had tough opponents this season, James has stood up and made himself matter.
