Man Utd news Diogo Dalot impressed on his debut against Young Boys

GETTY Man Utd news Diogo Dalot impressed on his debut against Young Boys

United host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the league on Saturday, before facing Derby County in the League Cup third round on Tuesday.

Jose Mourinho has told Diogo Dalot he will have to wait for his Premier League bow despite an impressive debut against Young Boys in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Marcus Rashford and Nemanja Matic are suspended for Manchester United, while Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo are not yet considered fit enough to feature.

"I think the team is resolving the defensive problems better than before", he said.

Before the game, Mourinho had urged his team to follow the example of Swiss tennis great Roger Federer and show they were capable of winning on different surfaces. "He let me take it as well", Pogba said, according to SportsMail.

"I know I missed that one against Burnley".

I don't know if there is a spot tomorrow. "I do think he's capable of [of scoring 40 goals]", Minto told Love Sport Radio . Eden Hazard's hat-trick secured a 4-1 comeback win over Cardiff City for Chelsea .

"Then they had a strong market, great work, great adaptation to the Premier League, getting the points and the performances that makes them feel and everybody feel, I include myself, that they are going to have a very stable season, very far from the problems normally a team that comes from the Championship has".

"To play for Manchester United is hard enough for a kid of 19 years old, coming from another country and after an important injury and surgery".

Mourinho explained that he is concerned over the potential impact of Young Boys' artificial pitch on the United captain's knee, with Dalot, Ashley Young and Matteo Darmian the options.

Speaking to MUTV after the game, Dalot said: "It was very good".

Mourinho was full of admiration for Nuno, insisting he's done "fantastic work" at Molineux, whilst also touching on the relationship between Wolves and Jorge Mendes. The duo have played in the three successive wins at Burnley, Watford and in Switzerland but Mourinho claims they have not yet established themselves as his first-choice pairing.

"I bet he's a really nice man but I think he treats football like a bit of a joke", he added.
