Diogo Dalot: Manchester United hosting Fulham a 'big game' after winless run

United paid Shakhtar Donetsk £52 million for the Brazil global, but he has only started six Premier League matches. Diogo Dalot has warned Manchester United that Fulham's visit to Old Trafford does not represent an easy chance to get back on track but insists Jose Mourinho is the man to guide his struggling team back into the top four.

"When the team is defensively stronger and does not need in midfield people that are more about giving some balance to the team than being involved in creating and attacking dynamics - the day we are stronger defensively, I think the horizons for Fred change completely", said Mourinho.

United are 18 points behind league leaders Manchester City and eight behind the Champions League places.

"Between us [there are] no problems - between the manager and the players", he said. We wanted to win but we can feel this point is good.

"Just to give you a couple of examples, (Ander) Herrera, (Marcus) Rashford are the kind of players that even if their game is not phenomenal, that intensity, that desire, that passion, that sacrifice is always present". One of the things have noticed in England is that there are no weak games in the Premier League.

"I sat here a few weeks ago speaking about December and no defeats - that's a reality - good fights, good spirit, but just one victory against Young Boys and three draws".

But he has revealed he won't speak about two long-term casualties: Victor Lindelof and Alexis Sanchez.

Phil Jones and Luke Shaw missed Wednesday's match with knocks, while Anthony Martial, Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling will be assessed after Friday's session.

Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White, who made his full Premier League debut in Wednesday's win over Chelsea, in Wednesday is also firmly in Southgate's thoughts ahead of the next year's games.
