Manchester United: Fans not impressed by Diogo Dalot injury update

Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot provided an update on his fitness via his Twitter channel @DalotDiogo, saying that he is “recovering” and “looking forward to joining back up with the team as soon as possible”.

Is this the worst Manchester United team in the Premier League era?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 20-year-old was forced off through injury in his team’s 0-1 defeat at Newcastle earlier this month, as noted by Manchester Evening News, his 60-minute appearance that afternoon the only gametime he has had in the Premier League so far this season, as per TransferMarkt.

He missed United’s first five matches of the campaign with a hip injury for which he underwent rehabilitation in China, as per Manchester Evening News, making his comeback in the Europa League win over Astana five weeks ago.

The Portuguese youngster also missed several matches last season due to various injuries and started just 14 games in the Premier League and Champions League in 2018/19.

Dalot is not the only defender at the club to have encountered injury problems – both Phil Jones and Luke Shaw have had multiple spells out of action during their careers at Old Trafford, with the latter already missing seven matches this season due to a hamstring problem.

These Manchester United fans on Twitter had little sympathy for Dalot upon reading his tweet:

Do you think Dalot is too injury-prone to be effective for Manchester United or can he bounce back to make a telling impact at the club? Let us know your views in the comments section below!
