Dan James scores two minutes after coming on against Man United, it had to be him

Dan James took just two minutes to score against Manchester United after coming on for Fulham in their Premier League clash on Sunday.

James entered the fray with his team trailing following Christian Eriksen's first goal for Man United in the 14th minute.

But the Wales international cancelled out Eriksen's goal with a strike in the 61st minute.

Willian slid in Tom Cairney who fired a ball across the box, with James on the end of the pass.

He tapped in from close range to level proceedings at Craven Cottage.

James embraced Cairney after scoring, but didn't celebrate against his old team.

Needless to say, his goal sent social media wild.

One Twitter user wrote: "Was always going to be Dan James."

A second tweeted: "United spent 80m on Sancho just for him to have the same impact as Dan James."

A third added: "Of course it had to be Dan James. It was obvious."

Another commented: "Dan James dunking on United, it was just meant to be."

Fulham were on course for a well-deserved point until the 93rd minute.

Second-half substitute Alejandro Garnacho exchanged passes with Christian Eriksen before slotting past Bernd Leno to grab a late, late winner.
