Manchester United Fans Drool Over One Player In Particular After Fulham Thrashing
Manchester United returned to winning ways on Saturday afternoon after Jose Mourinho’s men conjured up a 4-1 win at home to rock-bottom Fulham, as the Red Devils recorded their first Premier League win in five matches dating back to 11th November.
Man Utd headed into the break 3-0 up thanks to goals from Ashley Young, Juan Mata, and that man Romelu Lukaku who bagged his first Old Trafford goal since March.
Fulham pulled one back with just over 20 minutes left on the clock, courtesy of a Aboubakar Kamara penalty, only for the visitors to instantly have André-Frank Zambo Anguissa sent off. Then, Marcus Rashford rounded off the entertainment by scoring a goal his performance fully deserved.
United fans were, unsurprisingly, full of praise for their side, with one player singled out in particular.
Step forward Diogo Dalot, the summer signing from Porto, who was making just his third Premier League appearance for Mourinho’s men, following the back-to-back 2-2 draws against Southampton and Arsenal.
Diogo Dalot has been absolutely fantastic today, making the right side his own. He's been up and down the pitch constantly #mulive (@utdreport)
Dalot's enthusiasm is fantastic. More should play with his energy. (@LiamPaulCanning)
Dalot has been brilliant today. Hopefully going forward this season him and Shaw nail down those fullback places....#mufc (@Johnludds)
Honestly baffled as to why Dalot hasn’t been playing more, absolutely bombing up and down that wing, pinging in fantastic crosses every chance he gets, one of the best on the pitch today tbh. #MUNFUL (@_jennifermyers)
Dalot 10 year contract now!! (@RunningManRock7)
This lad Dalot looks the business. Has put in more quality crosses in 90 minutes than Valencia has in 9 years. Place cemented surely.... (@IrishDave26)
Dalot our next right back for 15 years. Good performance but sack mourinho (@ChrisGuma3)
Diogo Dalot. Best player on the pitch today. (@Unitedology)
Still don’t understand why Mourinho wasn’t giving Dalot games. The kid is wicked (@JD_Starbwoy)
