How Eden Hazard is inspiring Manchester United's summer signing

Manchester United summer signing from Swansea City, Daniel James has revealed that he is learning from Eden Hazard in a bid to improve his form.

James enjoyed a blistering start to his United career netting in his debut against Chelsea and notching up goals against Southampton and Crystal Palace. He has however failed to find the back of the net in the last seven United games. 

In an interview with BBC Sport, James revealed how he is emulating 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."
