The emergence of Diogo Dalot as Manchester United’s clear first-choice right-back has shifted the priority away from that position. Under Ten Hag’s management, Dalot has prevailed in the competition with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, offering both defensive and offensive contributions. Dalot has made 31 appearances this term, surpassing Wan-Bissaka’s 17, and has been excelling in his performances. His form has raised optimism about his ability to emulate players like Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kyle Walker.
In the recent 3-0 win against West Ham United, Dalot made a crucial block, showcasing his impact in games. Since his arrival at United in 2018, he has steadily developed and proven to be a valuable asset for the team, demonstrating the significance of patience in nurturing a player’s potential.
