Cristiano Ronaldo calls Man United first-team star his boy ahead of Everton clash

Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has described Diogo Dalot as his boy ahead of Everton’s trip on Saturday.

Man United will continue their quest on finishing in the top-four this season when they play visitors to Everton this weekend during lunchtime.

Manchester United dropped two valuable points last weekend after playing a 1-1 draw against Leicester City at Old Trafford.

However, The Gunners would lose 3-0 to Crystal Palace on Monday night at Selhurst Park, which eventually put United back in a better position to remain in the race.

United will go level on points [54] with 4th-placed Tottenham and 5th-placed Arsenal if they beat Everton, who lost 3-2 to Burnley on Wednesday night, on Saturday midday.

And Cristiano Ronaldo, who missed the clash against Leicester, took to social media to urge his team-mates to remain focused on the task at hand.

Ronaldo tweeted: “Work hard, focus on the everyday goals, enjoy the moments with your friends. Great training session with my boy [Diogo] Dalot! Keep fighting!”

Arsenal will host Brighton and Hove Albion this weekend and will need a response to their disappointing defeat to Crystal Palace.

Tottenham, who smashed Newcastle United 5-1 on Sunday, will face Aston Villa away from home this weekend as well.
