James has been a revelation for the Red Devils since his summer switch to Old Trafford.

Here’s what the Wales international had to say on Hazard:

“The way Hazard was at Chelsea – his movement in behind, when to go and when to stay – he’s so quick, but the way he stops people and goes, and little one-twos, getting shots off quickly is something he’s done his whole career.

“Getting in the box for tap-ins is something I need to improve on. When Hazard does a one-two you can’t get anywhere near him.

“When I was younger, people said to me you won’t always be able to rely on speed. I used to just kick it past players and run – but nowadays that won’t happen, especially when people bank up on me.”

The pressure is mounting on Solskjaer and the Norwegian desperately needs to win today’s clash with Newcastle United. The Red Devils need a boost going into the international break after a run of unflattering performances.
