Manchester United loanee gets into Europa League Team of the Week

On-loan from Manchester United, Diogo Dalot impressed in his San Siro debut for AC Milan against Sparta Prague in the UEFA Europa League.

As per WhoScored ratings, Dalot secured a 9.1 rating – third highest in the XI.

Dalot played the whole 90 minutes for the Rossoneri. Dalot completed 33 passes for Milan with an 89% completion rate and created 3 big chances.

Playing as a left back, Dalot combined impressively with fellow loanee Brahim Diaz to terrorize the Sparta defense. He was spraying dangerous long balls throughout the match. He was a constant menace through the left side, giving Milan much needed width to dominate the game.

Dalot also had an assist at the end of the night. Making an impressive run down the left hand channel, Dalot received the ball and evaded a tackle to put a pinpoint cross into the box for Rafael Leao to tap into the net.

The Portuguese left back also entered the score sheet in the 66th minute of the game. He made a very clever run behind the defense to receive a through ball from Ismail Bennacer and calmly wrapped his foot around it to finish past the keeper.

Diogo Dalot received the man of the match for his performance.

The Portuguese joined AC Milan on a straight season-long loan from Manchester United. Italian Transfer mogul Fabrizio Romano also confirmed that there is no clause in his contract which gives AC Milan an option to buy. Solskjaer also believes that Dalot would be a superb player for United in the future.
