Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho reserved special praise for young star Diogo Dalot after his performance vs Arsenal.
The Portuguese manager watched on as his side drew 2-2 with an in-form Gunners side and the teenager was one of the few defenders to not make an error.
The Spaniard atoned for his error after making incredible saves while the Argentine’s last ditch tackle saw him score an own goal.
Thankfully United hit back both times to come away with a point but Mourinho was clearly encouraged by Dalot’s performance.
Jose Mourinho: "Dalot right back for next 10 years."

The versatile defender was definitely impressive and has shown he can affect matches on both ends of the pitch.
A capable tackler, Diogo is also keen on getting up field as often as possible in order to provide United with width and to whip in some dangerous crosses.
Had his teammates offered better movement or read his crosses better then perhaps the youngster would’ve walked off the pitch with an assist or two in his pocket.
Dalot rarely fails to deliver the ball into a dangerous area but unfortunately his colleagues don’t make the effort to get into those positions.
