Diogo Dalot moved a step closer to making his Manchester United senior team debut with stepping up in the under-23s’ 1-0 win over Stoke at Old Trafford on Friday. Diogo Dalot played 78 minutes against Stoke in front of Mourinho and other coaching staff. Dalot was never really tested defensively but was positive going forward, whipping one dangerous cross into the box in the build-up to Gomes’ goal.
The 19-year-old right back was signed for £19 million from Porto in the summer. Diogo Dalot had his fair chances in making his first team debut as he appeared for eight senior team matches in February. He might miss the Burnley clash on Sunday but possibly making his debut after the international break.
