‘We can’t’ Manchester United star makes this admission about Wolves
United ran out comfortable 4-0 winners in a dominant display against Frank Lampard’s side at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Earlier in the day, Wolves kicked off their Premier League campaign with a goalless draw at Leicester City – but they were left furious when Leander Dendoncker’s goal was controversially disallowed after a drawn-out VAR check.
Wolves beat United twice on home soil last season with victories in the Premier League and in the quarter final of the FA Cup and James knows the visitors must be firing on all cylinders when they face Nuno Espirito Santo’s men.

“I think everyone was raring to go anyway, but we can’t get carried away,” James told Sky Sports.
“We’ve got a big, big test at Wolves next week and obviously they’ve shown how good they were, especially against us last season so we’ve got to be prepared for that.”
It was a perfect debut for James who came off the bench to round off the victory with a late goal following his summer move from Swansea City.
“I don’t think you could write it, really,” he added. “As soon as I signed here, I dreamed of something like that to happen and it did today.
“To score on my debut and to win 4-0 at Old Trafford in the first game, no, I don’t think you could (write it).”
