Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Manchester United's two signings so far in this transfer window, caught the eye as they made their debuts against Perth Glory on Saturday.  

United won 2-0 courtesy of goals from Marcus Rashford and James Garner, but it was the new signings who attracted the most attention.  

James, who was signed from Swansea, started the game and the 21-year-old winger caused numerous problems for the opposition during the clash in Australia.

Meanwhile, right-back Wan-Bissaka, who joined from Crystal Palace, was also impressive after being brought on at the start of the second half. 

United fans quickly took to Twitter to praise the defender, with one writing: 'Can we build a statue for Wan-Bissaka?'.

James received plenty of plaudits, too, with one user writing: 'Dan James is already my favourite player', while another added: 'I’m convinced Dan James is the missing piece in the United jigsaw and I’m sorry to say that we’re winning the Premier League this season.'

Furthermore, another fan added: 'I can confidently say that Dan James is going to a superstar'.

James and Wan-Bissaka will hope to impress again when United continue their preparations for the new campaign with a game against Leeds on Wednesday as part of their tour of Australia.

United were without Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Lee Grant against Perth Glory due to niggles, but Solskjaer still named completely different XIs in each half.   

Captain Ashley Young hit the side-netting from a free-kick in the first half and Anthony Martial and the impressive Jesse Lingard also had opportunities before Solskjaer made sweeping half-time changes, with wantaway midfielder Paul Pogba summoned and Wan-Bissaka handed his first United appearance.

United started the second period on the front foot and the deadlock was finally broken in the 60th minute as Pogba's flick found Rashford to hit a lovely low finish on the turn into the far corner.

Angel Gomes, Mason Greenwood and Marcos Rojo had attempts to extend the visitors' lead, before Garner came on for a seemingly hurt Luke Shaw in the closing stages. 

Greenwood then saw an effort impressively tipped onto the post by Tando Velaphi as United ended strongly.
