Daniel James Clatters Into Jose Mourinho, He Limps Off Into The Technical Area
Jose Mourinho received a heavy knock on his shin after Daniel James fell into him following a tackle by Harry Winks.
James and Winks contested a 50:50 ball near the touchline in the opening stages of their Premier League clash with the Tottenham man clattering the Welshman.
The United winger then flew into Mourinho who was left grimacing in pain and feeling his leg. James also had a hefty fall as he fell down the Old Trafford slope.
The youngster received treatment before returning to the pitch.

Needless to say, Mourinho and James' collision was the talk of the first half.
I was expecting a lot out of Jose Mourinho tonight, but smashing Daniel James in the head with his shin has caught me by surprise.
