The 21-year-old made his first Premier League start for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side at Craven Cottage and asserted himself as a possible mainstay in the near future.
Per Sofascore, Diallo made three tackles, two interceptions, and accumulated a pass success rate of 85%, the highest from the visiting team.
Diallo signed a four-year contract at St Marys following his £11m move from the French side Brest and continues to settle into life in England.
Will Diallo get a run in the Southampton side?
Unsurprisingly, supporters were delighted to see Diallo perform at such a high level as he provided a possible taster of what can be expected from the Frenchman going forward.
Fans impressed with Diallo
“Lacked a lot of big players out there, notably Ings, Romeu and Jannik. Not sure why Long played but he didn’t do much as usual. Diallo looks like a good little player. Not over the moon with a point, but as long as we keep picking up those points then all good #saintsfc”
“On the plus side, after a slow start Diallo is definitely one for the future #SaintsFC”
“1/3 not bad
Seriously though, Diallo probably the best of the bunch, promising signs. Stephens did alright too considering.”
“Not a bad performance, just one of those days. Thought Diallo grew into the game well, and very impressed with his stamina considering it was his first 90 minutes. Onto West Ham”
“Weird subs, thought Djenepo especially could of made an impact earlier. MOTM for me was Diallo. Extremely composed, thought Stephens was good too. Perhaps a crucial block in last second. Should of won. #saintsfc”
“Diallo looked promising. Some nice touches and runs but a lot to learn as well. Liked the look of him #saintsfc”
