Dalot: I will continue to give everything

Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot has reaffirmed his determination to give his all for the club, after starting in both of the Reds' recent victories over Arsenal and Crystal Palace.

The Portuguese full-back was full of praise for his team-mates following Sunday’s win at Old Trafford, and insisted he will relish any opportunity that comes his way.

''It's what I'm here for,'' our no.20 began, as he spoke to club media reporter Stewart Gardner after the game.

Diogo: Fred gives everything

Diogo Dalot praises "the underdog" Fred and savours a clean sheet against Palace...

''It’s not easy when you're outside [the starting XI] and you don't play as much, but it's our job to keep ready and I think I was doing a fantastic job outside the pitch being ready.''

The 22-year-old, who was a constant livewire down the right-hand side across the 90 minutes at Old Trafford, has stepped in following the injury Aaron Wan-Bissaka sustained against Chelsea recently.

With performances aplenty and games coming thick and fast for United ahead of a busy festive period, Dalot insists he is relishing the current chances given to him within the side.

''When the opportunity comes, I now feel I need to keep going and give everything when I'm on the pitch too.''

Positivity swirled around Old Trafford as Ralf Rangnick's first game in charge ended in victory.

The Reds dominated possession against Palace, with unlikely scorer Fred finishing emphatically with 13 minutes to go, to secure a third win in four games for his side.

Dalot said of his fellow Portuguese speaker: "He's the underdog. Everybody can criticise him but he keeps his head clear and goes on the pitch, every game he gives everything that he has, and that's what this club is about.

"Even if you lose the ball or miss a shot on goal, you're always going to try the next one and you're always going to fight for the team and that's what we want. Players like that is what we want."
