We know Wolves will give us a real fight, says Dan

Manchester Evening News - - WOLVES V UNITED - By DO­MINIC BOOTH

DANIEL James has warned his United team­mates about the dan­gers Wolves will pose in their FA Cup tie.

The winger is rel­ish­ing the start of the Reds’ cam­paign in the world’s old­est cup com­pe­ti­tion, but knows they face a tough ex­am­i­na­tion at Mo­lineux.

“I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to the com­pe­ti­tion again,” James said.

“We’ve got Wolves away, which will be tough. It’s Premier League op­po­si­tion and they’ve done well and we’ve al­ready been there once this sea­son.

“We want to go far in the com­pe­ti­tion, but this game will be tough.

“I want to win tro­phies. We want to win the League Cup, get as far as we can in the FA Cup and, with the Premier League, we just need to keep win­ning games.

“We want to get into that top four and I think we’re very ca­pa­ble of do­ing that.”

On Wolves’ spe­cific threats, James men­tioned Nuno Espir­ito Santo’s wing-back sys­tem, which has trou­bled United in the past.

“They’ve got a solid back­line and they play their five at the back and counter very well,” James added.

“We’ve had some tricky re­sults against them re­cently but, when we went there ear­lier in the sea­son, I think we did re­ally well and we were dis­ap­pointed not to come away with the three points.

“We’ve looked back over that game and we’ll be ready.”
