‘What a player’ – Luke Shaw and Lisandro Martinez agree on Man United teammate after Brighton win

Manchester United duo Lisandro Martinez and Luke Shaw hailed teammate Diogo Dalot after he scored in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion.

Dalot netted the opening goal of the game, putting United ahead with 73 minutes on the clock. He latched onto a straight ball over the top, brought it down and fired past Seagulls goalkeeper Jason Steele.

It marked his third goal of the season and his second in the Premier League. The Portuguese is a strong contender to be crowned United’s Player of the Season after a solid campaign.

Reacting to United’s final day victory on the south coast, Dalot posted on his Instagram page: “Best way to push us to next weekend at Wembley. Always special to score for this club.”

Dalot, who has made 49 appearances in all competitions this term, has been a shining light in what has been a miserable season for the Reds, rarely letting Erik ten Hag’s side down. He has operated at both right-back and left-back without any fuss, always getting on with the task at hand.

And it is his performances and attitude in either role that may have triggered such praise from Martinez and Shaw in the replies to his Instagram post.

Martinez commented: “Toppppp.” Shaw added: “What a player.”
