When Luke Shaw and Wan-Bissaka were injured, coach Ralf Rangnick used Alex Telles and Diogo Dalot in two wing positions in the last match, Manchester United against Crystal Palace. The 2 substitute players played extremely effectively and this inadvertently became a difficult problem to solve in terms of personnel usage for the German coach. Manchester United cost 55 million euros to bring Wan-Bissaka to Old Trafford, the price is not cheap for a defender. The English winger has also occupied a starting position in the Red Devils squad for a long time. The 1997 defender still seems to have not lived up to the expectations of the coaching staff and fans. He has speed, is good at tackles, but he does not perform well in the attack and often makes mistakes in the defense system.
Meanwhile, Dalot is very active in blocking the opponent’s ball. The Portuguese defender is also more appreciated than Wan-Bissaka in stability in cross situations and even surprising shots from afar. Moreover, Dalot is younger, physically fit and hard to press, which coach Rangnick likes.

On the left wing, the German coach will certainly also have difficulty choosing personnel to play in the starting lineup. Luke Shaw has long been considered the mainstay of Manchester United. No one can doubt the ability of the 1995 defender and his contributions to the Reds. The English player plays well in both attack and defence. He stands out with his precise climbs and crosses.
Compared to Luke Shaw, Alex Telles is considered stronger in fixed situations and improvised handling phases. The Brazilian defender can completely give Manchester United an advantage with his good free-kick ability.
It is very possible that Luke Shaw and Wan-Bissaka will probably lose their official positions to the duo of Telles and Dalot. Fans and experts are waiting for what coach Ralf Rangnick will do with his tactical intentions and in the immediate future will be the match between Manchester United and Young Boys in the final match, the Champions League group stage at 3 o’clock.
