Cape Town - Wales coach Ryan Giggs has praised the "amazing" start made by Daniel James this season and urged the youngster to focus on consistency.

James, who has scored three goals in United's opening four Premier League games, netted the winner for Wales against Belarus on Monday.

The 21-year-old has formed a key part of Giggs' plans for The Dragons, with the manager imploring the league's biggest surprise to show "consistency" as his "next step".

"He's one of those players you know what he's going to do but you can't stop it," Giggs said.

"There are so many goals [he's scored] like that. He can go either way.

"Early on when I saw DJ, just like any young winger, there can be that improvement in the final ball and scoring more goals. But he's doing that.

"To do what he's done at the start of the season is amazing. The next step obviously is that consistency, which he's shown so far, and he needs to carry on.

"But I've got no doubts that will happen because he wants to be the best."

The winger is likely to start on Saturday when the Premier League returns as United welcome Leicester City to Old Trafford.

Kick-off is at 16:00 (SA time).
