With Shaw still only 23 and new boy Dalot just 19 years old, there is a sense that the duo could go on to become a formidable long-term full back pairing for United, and speaking on BT Sport, via the Daily Star, former United star Hargreaves told the pair to match the exploits of Liverpool's star full backs.

"Yes, yes, yes.

The Chile global is yet to score in four games this season and has managed just three in 22 games since arriving from Arsenal.

Dalot grabbed headlines with his exciting performance in Manchester United's 3-0 win over Young Boys on Wednesday night and many now want him to make his Premier League debut as well.

"I think it is [a mental thing]", he said.

And Jimenez says competition among the squad is strong, which is helping the players to perform well on the pitch.

"So, they got this season, the Portuguese national team goalkeeper [Rui Patricio], they got [Joao] Moutinho, who is one of the players of the 100 caps club".

"I think this is more the influence of the moment".
