    Not a winger obviously.

    He's not a winger and should be viewed as someone just filling in until Lingard returns. We need real quality in that position, Dalot should be used at RB next season, hopefully with a special RW ahead of him. He can put in a good cross but he doesn't have the pace, trickery or attacking flair to be the forward option.

    Hope he develops his game as a right back, i'm not even sure what position was playing, was he really playing as a winger?

    considering his age i won't be surprised if ole decides to change his position into a more attaking one though.

    Good game for him. He's got the right mentality to be here, with his directness and desire. Probably not quick enough to be a winger but I hope he makes the full back spot his own next year.

    I would really like to see him get more games at right back. Seems to adjust nicely to life in Manchester.

    I think Dalot is not really playing as winger, he's playing as a wingback on the right flank, you can see from the tactical point view that Young is playing as LCB.

    If this is how Dalot attack considering we brought him for the future RB, I'd be happy with it. We probably could have scored a goal from his attacking other days.

    I like him better as an energy sub bringing some pep off the bench than starting at this point. Just not ready, especially as a defender in these big games.

    Yeah his poorest games have been at fullback. Wouldn't have minded seeing him wide in a 433 again.

    Definitely. I don't think he's looked good in defence at all. As a winger he's been impressive. It's why, even though he's not great himself, I'd have Young starting over him for sure.

    He's not ready to start as a RB for United. He seems to have no clue defensively at times. Obviously has potential, but we need to play an experienced RB ahead of him who is not Ashley Young.

    To be fair to him, did he at any point get one option ahead of him on the right hand side? We just ignore the whole side of the pitch.

    Nobody to link with on his side of the pitch and a poor game from the midfield and both CB's had dodgy moments, I find it hard to see much wrong in his basic performance, it wasn't great but a young player is going to struggle with that much dysfunction from the senior players.

    He was alright, clearly playing it safe and with not much going on ahead of him. He's shown he's no worse than Ashley Young so time to start playing him into the team.

    Pretty poor defensively. We should switch him to a sub RW and get another right back in summer.

    Team ignored him for large parts of the match. Decent connection on a shot that got blocked. Booked late on.

    No complaint from me. I think he did fine.

    "Good in attack, lacking in defending, still raw" is getting repetitive.

    It's within expectation.

    If you think this is repetitive, try visiting the other player performance threads.

    I think it needs saying again, if anything, because there’s some people on this forum who think we don’t need a RB this summer. Despite losing the ageing Valencia and Darmian and young Dalot not looking particularly reading for RB yet.

    With how many people claim he should be our starting RB then no it isn't within expectation of a starting RB for a top club.

    What is repetitive is his consistent lack of ability to defend properly. He isn't ready to be a starter, now that is fine and within expectation. You can't pull the teenage card while still claiming he should start every game though.

    Right now he is worse than Young. There, I said it! Yes, he may learn and he may become better than Young in the future, but right now he is worse.

    Nope. Lingard was MIA.

    I don't see it with him if I'm honest.

    Disagree, I honestly think he is world class already. I know that sounds crazy but Mbappe is world class at the same age. Dalot just oozes quality.

    No-one was passing to him when he actually had space to take a touch and find a ball into the box. Really annoyed me how the midfield seemed to ignore him at times yesterday and I'm not sure why. Pogba was one of the main culprits.

    Dalot has certainly shown a weakness in his defending over the course of the season, but the aftermath of the Wolves game is a strange time to bring in up and that was a strange game to reference with respect to your overall point.

    He was fine yesterday, no particular lapses or poor choices defensively. Ineffective and, in large swathes, anonymous in attack after being abandoned on his flank, as our right back tends to be.

    We need to play Dalot right wing until we can make personnel changes in the summer. Not because he’s not ready to play full back, but because he will best balance the team from the advanced role down that side of the pitch.

    He is nowhere near world class mate. I doubt he ever will be.

    That’s quite a bump on the head you’ve had.
