Man United were 2-1 winners over Aston Villa on Sunday and one player who played a key role in the win has received praise from his manager Erik ten Hag.
Scott McTominay scored the late winner after latching onto a wonderful cross from Diogo Dalot. The Portuguese star has been in good form recently and once again showed his worth at Villa Park.
Erik ten Hag was full of praise for Dalot after the match and has said that the full-back is developing well this season.
“Everyone gets criticism but he is a fantastic player who is developing very well,” the Dutch coach said about the defender via Fabrizio Romano.
“He can play in so many positions and he is improving on crosses.
“He can score and his defending is improving so I am very pleased with him.”

Dalot had some big moments against Villa Park on Sunday and this followed a very impressive display against West Ham last weekend. The 24-year-old has performed well since the turn of the year and has become a key member of the United squad for Ten Hag.
The Portuguese star has often been criticised for his performances in the past but at present, his role in the team is not a worry and Ten Hag is confident that the Man United star will continue to get better.
