Dalot was Man Utd’s best player vs Arsenal

Manchester United left-back Diogo Dalot was the standout performer for the Red Devils during the 1-0 Premier League defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.

The Red Devils went into the game without several key players. Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford returned to team training but did not make the matchday squad.

United were obviously underdogs against the Gunners. A lack of defensive discipline from Casemiro gifted the Gunners the opening goal in the 20th minute.

Arsenal were unable to double their advantage and credit must go to the defence and goalkeeper Andre Onana. He made a string of quality saves to keep the score at 1-0.

Dalot was also fantastic at left-back. He was the standout performer as he managed to see out the threat of Bukayo Saka with relative ease.

Saka was carrying a minor injury from the previous game, but Dalot showed his quality, winning an impressive eight out of his 11 ground and aerial duels.

The Portuguese also won 100 percent of his tackles (5/5) and 100 percent of his take-ons (3/3). He also made three clearances and provided one key pass for Alejandro Garnacho.

Garnacho had a clear sight on goal with plenty of space and time to shoot, but fluffed his lines.

Dalot won his battle against Saka in the reverse fixture at the Emirates Stadium and replicated the feat at Old Trafford with another fine display.
