Diogo Dalot combines superbly with Antony for first Premier League goal, produces cold celebration
| Last updated
Diogo Dalot scored his first Premier League goal and produced a cold celebration to along with it against Nottingham Forest.
Manchester United dominated Forest at the City Ground, with Antony putting Erik ten Hag's side 1-0 up in the 32nd minute.
Keylor Navas pulled off a number of fine saves to keep the scoreline at 1-0 but Dalot doubled the lead in the second half after a wondrous passage of play.
Antony turned provider this time, finding the underlapping run of Dalot, who opened his account in the Premier League whilst playing at left-back.
There were at least five different celebrations from Dalot after he found the net, varying from him checking his pulse to seeing him sprint over to the United fans.
He also performed a handshake with Antony, the two striking a pose and not flinching in the slightest as they did.
