Stat Shows How Much Of An Upgrade Daniel James Is On Alexis Sanchez

This simple stat shows just how much of an upgrade Daniel James is on Alexis Sanchez at Manchester United.

The Welsh winger was signed from Swansea City in a £15million deal in the summer.

And he’s hit the ground running at Old Trafford, scoring three in his first four Premier League games.

That includes a goal against Southampton today in United’s 1-1 draw at St Mary’s.

After scoring that goal, football writer Richard Jolly simply summed up the impact of James in comparison to Sanchez.

And it shows he’s definitely an upgrade on the Chilean attacker:

Sanchez joined United in January 2018 and much would have been expected of him considering his form at Arsenal over three and a half seasons.

But he managed just three goals in 32 Premier League appearances and just five total in 45 games.

Sanchez was yesterday shipped out to Inter Milan on loan and could be in line to make his debut against Cagliari tomorrow.
