“Resilient character…” – Man United star proved Erik ten Hag correct after Liverpool performance



| Last Updated:


One Manchester United player proved Erik ten Hag correct after the 2-2 draw against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Whilst it was disappointing to see United drop points once again from a winning position, multiple positive performances were to be taken from the game.

Diogo Dalot was one player who stood out in the game. He was crucial behind the second-half comeback from United.

The defender was criticised for his prior display against Chelsea after giving away a late penalty.

However, Ten Hag was confident that the defender would come back stronger for the Liverpool game, with his form across the season being solid.

When asked if Dalot would be able to bounce back, Ten Hag told club media: “Absolutely.

“Diogo is a very resilient character. He will deal with it. I’m sure. But [that] counts for Diogo and for the whole team.

“He was playing a brilliant game but you always get judged by moments and there he makes a mistake.

“He will deal with it. I’m not reserved, I’m sure he will be there on Sunday.”

Dalot was moved back to his more comfortable position at right-back against Jurgen Klopp’s men and excelled when inverting inside and helping United in possession.

He has been one of the club’s most consistent players this season and is one of few who have not been affected by injury.
