Diogo Dalot scored a stunning long-range winner to give Manchester United a much-needed 2-1 victory over Sheffield United in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Red Devils had struggled to break down the Blades' stubborn defence for much of the game, but Dalot's moment of magic in the 77th minute secured all three points for Erik ten Hag's side.

After collecting a pass from Victor Lindelof, Dalot turned sharply and unleashed a fabulous curling strike into the top corner of Wes Foderingham's net. The goal was Dalot's first of the season and was a fitting reward for his excellent performance.

Manchester United had taken the lead in the first half through Scott McTominay, but Sheffield United equalised through Oliver McBurnie's penalty shortly after the break.

However, Dalot's stunning winner ensured that Manchester United would leave Bramall Lane with all three points.
