Injured Dalot set to be fit for Aston Villa clash

Manchester United right-back Diogo Dalot is expected to be fit for their weekend clash against Aston Villa despite suffering an injury on Monday night.

Dalot sustained a gash in the first-half of the match but managed to play all 90 minutes after five stitches at half-time and painkillers.

Manchester Evening News says Ralf Rangnick expects Dalot to be available for the trip to Villa Park this weekend with the tie being the second one between the two sides in a span of a week after United beat the Steven Gerrad side on Monday to dump him out of the FA Cup.

The Portugal international has seemingly replaced Aaron Wan-Bissaka as the first choice right-back at Old Trafford and is expected to continue in the same role when Villa calls this weekend..

Dalot has started in five of United's last eight matches and has been one of the club's best performers under the German.
