Loads of Man Utd fans think Dalot’s time is up after being overlooked at left-back despite injuries

Diogo Dalot has been named on the bench for Manchester United’s trip to Selhurst Park tonight.

Many expected the Portuguese full-back to get the nod tonight after Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams were both substituted on Monday night after picking up knocks, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has thrown a surprise into tonight’s team.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah makes his first appearance of the season at left-back with Dalot being overlooked again. He hasn’t had many chances this season due to injuries, but we are no convinced that Solskjaer fancies his chances in the team long-term.

That may come as a surprise. José Mourinho signed Dalot in 2018 and sung his praises as being one of the best young full-backs in Europe. Now, having seen him play, I can certain acknowledge his potential but I’ve not seen enough quality to believe he has what it takes to be a starter at Manchester United.

Not even tonight, clearly.

Over on Twitter, United fans are suggesting this news may spell the end of Dalot’s future. See below:

We shouldn’t forget this is a great opportunity for Fosu-Mensah. The Netherlands international has had a difficult few years with troublesome loan spells and bad injuries.

We can only hope this is the beginning of his break into the United first-team.
