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

"We knew it was going to be a hard game because Old Trafford is always a tough place to come".

"For sure we will get there".

Lingard's exertions came at a cost, though, as a groin injury that he had carried since Russian Federation lied him low for a month, with the attacking midfielder only scoring his first United goal of the season when securing Wednesday's 2-2 draw at home to Arsenal.

"I have been following the Premier League since I can remember, since I first watched football, and to be able to see from the stands for a while and then get on to the pitch, it has all been good experience for me", Dalot said.

The Gunners can take that to 21 matches against the Terriers with Ozil's return to the side likely to be delayed till they play Qarabag in the Europa League next week.

"Obviously it got to a point where I couldn't carry on, so that break did me well and I am raring to go now". With the help of my team-mates, the coach and the fans I think I will be improving a lot here. It was an enjoyable summer and a good season for me on a personal level last season. "Tomorrow we'll train before the game on Saturday and that's the moment you can know if the players will be okay or not for Saturday".

Epic Games Store is live and promises free games every fortnight
Instead of taking a 30% cut (something Steam initially takes), the Epic Store takes 12%, a far more appealing deal. Up first is underwater exploration title Subnautica , which will be available at no charge from December 14.

Jose Mourinho has had a tough start to the season, but Diogo Dalot is thrilled to be playing under his compatriot (Martin Rickett/PA).

"Sead Kolasinac came off with his head down but I said to him he had a very good match in attack and you have to be positive and learn from this match". I am still learning, it is not ideal.

The Merseyside outfit have established themselves as Manchester City's closest challengers for the Premier League title this season as they look to win their first major trophy under Jurgen Klopp.

We also have concerns in defence as Rob Holding is facing a spell on the sidelines after he was stretchered off with a serious-looking knee injury on Wednesday night. "We fought a lot".

"Today it's very early because this morning we have been working, but with the players who didn't play yesterday".

The Red Devils have gone with a three-man defence with Bailly, Smalling and Rojo set to play as the centre-halves. "We have confidence and we have to win the next matches".
