Manchester United fans must be still relishing the manner in which their side defeated Chelsea 4-0 on the opening weekend of the Premier League.

Certainly, the most magical moment of the evening was when Daniel James scored minutes after making his Manchester United debut. At that point, Old Trafford was already on an incredible high about the three goals that had gone in prior and James’ shot just sent them spiraling into even more joy.

The manner in which nearly the entirety of the squad came and celebrated along with James was also very touching as was the reason behind the emotional response that the winger made by pointing to the heavens.

It is obvious that the Welshman is proving to be a favorite in the locker-room and some of the social media responses from his teammates clearly point to the same.

Scott McTominay also heralded the Welshman’s goal and even pointed out the emotional significance of it. James’ father had passed away before he completed his switch to United. The youngster had dedicated the magical goal to his father.

McTominay referenced this on his Instagram by stating: “That is my man. Old man would be proud”
