Daniel James' brother left the Manchester United star on his Fantasy Football bench


The Premier League is back folks, and with it, the return of Fantasy Football.

Some will have spent hours, perhaps days even agonising over their starting line-ups as the first deadline day drew nearer and nearer.

Others may have spent the whole summer refusing to play after a miserable season last time out, only to go back on everything they said and slap a squad together in the dying minutes.

Now, the first game day has come and gone and many fantasy footballers will already have an inkling as to how their seasons may or may not pan out.

That similar sinking feeling, when you see your entire midfield blank, you star defender concede late on, or your points haul merchant of a striker miss a sitter will have bitten hard once again.

However, nothing can quite compare to the rush of getting your team spot on and watching the points roll in as the weekend goes by.

Those green arrows next to all your mini-leagues are like a drug to some and the sight of some upward movement can prove quite the tonic.

This opening weekend was all about Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane who raked in a combined 33 points between them while Eric Pieters proved to be the surprise package in defence.

Annoyingly, there is always that one maverick who will bizarrely triple captain Pascal Gross the day he nails a brace of goals and an assist leaving the rest of us absolutely tearing our hair out.

However, this weekend was not one of those moments for certain Daniel James’ brother.

The Welsh flyer came on to make his Premier League debut for Manchester United during their drubbing of Chelsea and in a remarkable fantasy of his own, scored in front of the Stretford End.

It was the stuff of his dreams for the 21-year-old - as for his brother though, well, we’ll let this viral tweet do all the talking.

"When you leave your bro @Daniel_James_97 on the bench in your fantasy team and he comes on to score. Sorry DJ, I’ll have more faith for the rest of the season."

Poor lad - don't we all know the feeling.

James’ goal may have only seen him garner six points, but those six points can go a very long way come the end of a fantasy season.

You can be sure Daniel is going to be the first name on Alex’s team-sheet for the rest of the season.

Imagine the scenes around the family dinner table now - brilliant.
