Manchester United interim head coach Ralf Rangnick confirms that Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles will once again start in the full-back positions against West Ham United.

Manchester United interim head coach Ralf Rangnick has said that Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles will once again operate in the full-back positions against West Ham United on Saturday.

The duo have been regulars since Rangnick's arrival as head coach, and with Luke Shaw injured and Aaron Wan-Bissaka still unwell, both players will continue in the starting XI against the Hammers this weekend.

Rangnick has lavished praise on Dalot for his performances this season, but the German has admitted that the right-back still needs to improve his defensive work in order to take his game to the next level.

"Offensively, he (Dalot) has a lot of assets, he did well for somebody who can deliver crosses from the wing, he can take on players one on one situations," Rangnick told reporters.

"There is still space for improvement in his defensive work. He's not that much of a defensive full-back, but more of an offensive full-back but this is normal.

"There are quite a few other full-backs in other clubs where it is the same. Quite a few of those full-backs formerly played at right or left-wingers. Therefore so far with developments I've had while I'm here with Diogo and Telles, I'm happy. They get more game-time now because Luke is injured and Aaron is still ill."

Victor Lindelof will also be missing against West Ham on Saturday due to personal reasons, so club captain Harry Maguire could regain his starting role alongside Raphael Varane.
