Daniel James believes the competition for places in forward positions at Manchester United can only be a good thing.

The Wales winger scored on his return to the United line up in the 6-2 win over Leeds, having not featured since he netted as a substitute versus Istanbul Basaksehir in November.

Having been a surprise inclusion in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side for the game, the goal will be a major confidence-booster for James.

United are blessed with a range of attacking options right now but the 23-year-old is determined to vie with the likes of Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial for game time.

"It's always going to be [the case] here and that's good for all of us," James told MUTV.

 

"I don't think any of us want to be in the team thinking we're going to play week-in, week-out.

We want to play that competition and it's good that a lot of us can play any position as well.

"It's always nice to score in that [Stretford] end.

Obviously there's no cheer but I know they're all cheering back home."

James revealed Solskjaer had instructed his players to match Leeds' intense running in the United victory.

And for James, who almost moved to Elland Road in January 2019 and has been subject to transfer interest from the Whites since, it was a special win.
