Diogo Dalot news

Dalot out of Reading game

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed that Diogo Dalot won't be available for the FA Cup fourth round tie against Reading.

The Red Devils recently returned to winning ways with a 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final.

They will now be aiming to beat Reading at Old Trafford, but ahead of the game, the club are set to be without the services of Dalot again.

The Portuguese has been sidelined for the past few weeks with a thigh issue and Ten Hag has confirmed that he has not recovered yet.

Apart from the right-back, Luke Shaw could also be doubtful for the encounter, having missed the recent Forest trip with a niggle.

There is, however, some good news with Ten Hag opening the door for Jadon Sancho to return to the matchday squad after a long absence.

The England star was sent for a special training programme in the Netherlands recently and could now make his comeback.
